Border [Inspired onreading Mamtaji's Death Of A Soldier]


Cross-border Fire?
Border?
God created Earth
The Borders He made -
The Sky and the Sea
Where the Dove of Peace
Flew endlessly.
Man came made Borders
Cain And Able Brothers
Cain And Able Enemies too
Man came killed the Dove
And offered it as Sacrifice!

    Our world is full of God given beauty, everywhere we look we can find it. Some of us appreciate and gain joy from this beauty. This then causes love to run and spread. Others see only riches they can hoard and keep to themselves. This causes hate and rivers of blood to flow. Why can't we see the difference? (Report) Reply

    even i have the same opinion as that of mamtaji.
    there is just only one border, the one which separates life and death.........
    sad nobody knows that............... (Report) Reply

    God made borders for us to revel in the beauty of nature. man made borders to cruelly destroy all that is beautiful. very touching, hit the nail on the head Angelina.

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
