Watch and wait

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

Watch as the blood that is shed

lay­ers the street that we walk.

Watch as young chil­dren grow up,

in homes that are full of abuse, with moth­ers bleed­ing and fathers drink­ing.

How do you sleep know­ing that this is hap­pen­ing.

This is a war that we all need to fight.

A battle in our own back yard.

You are happy to help an­other coun­try,

but what about what goes on in ours?

STOP and think about this. We have peo­ple in poverty, we have chil­dren liv­ing on the streets fight­ing to stay alive,

and yet peo­ple walk past them and say noth­ing.

As one we need to make a stand against this. State to State, Com­mu­nity to Com­mu­nity, Street to Street, House to House, This is the be­gin­ning of a new fu­ture so let’s make this hap­pen.
