The World is Asleep – Its Eyes Closed


Some things are out of our reach

So we imagine, and that is when all is well

Luxuries we can’t afford,

Needs unmet, as the years go by

The world is asleep, its eyes closed

Basic is such a necessity, the elite we beseech

Pipes and pumps, they brought us, our plight they tell

And in approval we nod

For a while, we won’t cry

But the world is still asleep, its eyes closed.

Water is life, go on. Preach!

Some remote areas, still sounding their thirst bell

 We must go back to the drawing board

Our people are being left to die

And this world stays asleep, its eyes closed.

Clean is our spirit, our water is coloured, peach!

Our yells unheard, how long do we dwell?

Still heading to the rivers with our gourds

Women and children, on their heads with their pots held high

This sight upon the world, and still it sleeps, its eyes closed

Drinking  from the habitats of leeches

Sick from contamination, our health we sell

What can we do? We pray to the Lord

For overflowing clean water, not vessels dry

How long, world, will you stay asleep, your eyes tightly closed?

  1. “Jn 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.”

    The water spoken of here is the teachings of Yahweh through His Son Yahshua. Pray for understanding read the entire Bible and your people will be saved by the instruction of the Mighty One who saves.

    The water given by the mouths of those who claim to teach was as muddy and leech infested as what you were left to drink. Get the pure water from the true teachings of Yah, and you will see and feel miracles within your midst. My prayers are with you.
