Love and Peace

The poem below is my contribution to jingle’s thursday poets’ rally:jingle

To kill  innocents

in the name of   religion

is hideous

 

To kill  innocents

in the name of   race

is  odious

 

 

To kill innocents

in pursuit of  power

is an abomination

 

 

To kill innocents

For gas and  oil

is an execration

 

 

Enough of violence

Enough of bloodshed

Let’s break the silence

And work for peace instead.

 

 

 

Let’s be humane

And cease  war hostilitiy

Let’s be human

And  end  wild  animosity

Let’s  relieve pain

And save all  humanity

  20. Great words, and I think 99% of the world would agree with you – and then there’s politics, religious fanaticism and Big Biz.

  21. I am sure the whole world will agree with this friend, cool post, peaceful post.

  22. I agree with you! In a history class I had we were studying the idea of propaganda and the meaning of freedom across several generations. After reading your poem, I believe freedom will occur when humanity can finally be at peace with itself and its brothers and sisters. And truly help each other in times of crisis!

  23. Nice simple but powerfully written. Loving your layout here too. I popped over from Jongles blog I hope you don’t mind!

  24. Great poem wordwand., thanks for the visit to my blog 🙂

  28. I agree with your poem 100% but it always comes down to “how?”…everybody seems to think it’s out of their hands to do so…being just 1 person – that’s the challenge.

  29. Amazing!
