No more war, please

    The poem consists of a prayer from a wounded humanity, the poem consists of a message to all the tyrants of the world. May God listen to this emotional prayer. We hope that the impact carries through. Amin! (Report) Reply

    Poems about war or should I say antiwar can be very strong, but I can't say that about this one. It is to short, with no substance or details, no rhyme, and an overabundance of repetition. The one good thing, is that I can imagine the author being desperate, only able to cry out the same thing over and over again, so that adds a sort of appeal for this poem, and adds emotion.

    So many poets share these sentiments and write on this theme ardently, we can never address this theme enough until major powers and rebel countries stop fighting greed profit wars. (Report) Reply

    War destroys the development and humanity due to dangerous act. A very sensitive and heart breaking poem that provokes thought to have a deep feeling. Learning the art of love ceases war and ties us with universal brotherhood. Very wise compose shared and really wise poem of the day. Love let shine love is every heart....10 (Report) Reply
