No More War

No more war, please
Please no more war
No more bloodthirsty leader, please
Please no more bloodthirsty leader
No more humanity’s slaughter, please
Please no more humanity’s slaughter
Learn to love, please
Please learn to love.

    I wish there was a poem that could end all wars, words that would heal all peoples problems, I like your poem, I wrote this poem last summer but I didnt put it on here though

    Can I close my eyes and just pretend
    All the wars have come to an end
    And peace is all around the world
    Love has found every boy and girl
    But the haunting flames burn my eyes
    And I see the planes flying across the skys
    And all the soldiers falling one by one
    For wars that never will be won
    Can I close my eyes and pray
    Dear God, may peace soon find its way (Report) Reply

    Asif.I agree with your sentiments.No more PLEASE.Just NO BLOODY WAR. What is War? It is a contrived situation where two entities dein to take the power of the other. A squabble for POWER AND INFLUENCE.The world is full of little power brokers who are prepared to exercise their right (As they see it) to eliminate the whole human race who do not agree with their idea of a perfect life.This means strapping explosives to women, children, and educationally subnormal people.Their objective is then for these poor misinformed people to enter markets and blow to hell dozens of women children and innocent people.Why? So that they can exercise the power of the 'Big Shot'.THINK what I tell you or face death they say.One can say that a cruise missile is none selective in who it takes ouT.Another may say it is cruel to select innocent people to be deliberatly slaughtered like cattle in the name of some ideal...Whichever way is it not better to BUILD than Destroy? Tell the hand wringers to get off their arses and prepare to build a better life for themselves and their children.Sitting in the dust for eight hours a day or in a sophisticated military bunker directing people to their deaths will solve nothing.DOWN WITH WAR.

    True war should not be there and there should be a Love which will get the peace around.
    nice appeal.

    surely, no more war!

    I see throughout the history, no ferocious animal's cruelty
    from Amazon or Africa's deep forests
    can be equalized to human's atrocity!
    I see millions of people living as like as Rat's life!

    your expression is fine! .............10+ (Report) Reply
