Stop Smoking

Poem – World No Tobacco Day

No one should smoke,

As it will burn your lungs to its core,

All day as you do it more,

Cannot stop this addiction, no more,


Lungs no more give us that smile,

We see every day,

If you do not stop,

It will hurt you more,


The colors of the sky fade away,

Into a thick air of smoke,

Hurting your soul, and its entity,

Please stop smoking at least for this day,


Where if it will rise far,

Ceasing the air to breath,

Slowing down your life stock,

That may lead to your end,


These lungs won’t work no more,

As they will slowly get shattered,

Please celebrate this day,

By bringing an end to this catastrophe.
