My Country

Messages of true patriotism
Yearn for being heard
Citizen of this nation
Oliphant in its policies
Ubiquitous in world affairs
Nestled unity in diversity
Tourist attraction, its beauty
Rising population, political chaos
Yet powerful her voice
Acrostic Only

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. I guess that's what really makes up one country, there is beauty, there is ugliness, there is diversity, in spite of being just a one nation!Beautiful post Leo! I won't bet, it would again be an endless debate!

  2. The best part, I think of writing this acrostic, is to look at your country objectively, and still find something wonderful about it .. good take on the prompt Leo.
