Love And War - Poem by ENOCH JOHN

Fear binds us to the earth
But faith lifts us to the heavens!

Hate burdens the bearer
But love frees the loving.

War brings destruction and grief
But peace brings healing in its wings.

Fools there may be many
But wise men are few.

And cowards die a thousand deaths
But brave men live forever!

    Well written poem about which all men should know the meaning. War is mans greatest failing, it makes him far less human. Well Done! ! (Report) Reply
