The fight against crime

Dark shadows fall,
Across the land,
Where crime runs rampant,
At every hand.

Guns and knives,
A daily sight,
The people suffer,
In endless plight.

A nation torn,
A people scared,
The crime goes on,
And no one cared.

But hope still lingers,
In every heart,
That one day soon,
A new day will start.

The sun still rises,
Over mountain peaks,
The ocean glistens,
With each gentle creek.

The land is rich,
In history and lore,
But darkness lingers,
Behind every door.

The people dream,
Of peace and light,
A day of freedom,
Where all is right."

I tried to capture the beauty of South Africa, while acknowledging the problems with crime.
The future's unknown,
But hope remains,
That one day soon,
The clouds will drain.

The sun will shine,
On land and sea,
And all will prosper,
In harmony.

So let us strive,
With hope and faith,
To build a future,
Of love and grace.

The government stands,
With power and might,
But crime remains,
A daunting fight.

Budget constraints,
And corruption, too,
Make progress slow,
What to do?

New laws enacted,
And plans in place,
But crime persists,
With no disgrace.

The people cry,
For safety and peace,
The government tries,
But will it cease?
