Treasure Island

Path To Heaven

Hawkish words from great nations of today
‘Our credibility is at stake’
Justifying the euphoria in support of war
More or less similar words
'Our honor is at stake'
Litter the ancient history
Of kings and warrior race
And their antique ways of
Settling the differences
With a quick draw of sword
Different times different people
Same arrogance and same vanity
The real culprit
A desire and hunger
For power and supremacy
Built in and hidden
Deep in human heart
Seekers of peace still called coward
Settling issues by tip of a sword
Or with the barrel of a gun
Not to mention countless barrage
Of new weapons
A bold choice for many
To defend righteousness
To rid the world of evil
An eternally glorified path
For fighters and martyrs
Leading straight to Heaven
A call Humanity can't seem to resist or reject!

    Desire and hunger for power and supremacy are embedded in human psyche. Though times have changed, modern rulers are no different from kings and warriors who settled differences with a quick draw of sword. The duty incumbent on a peace loving man is to defend righteousness and try to rid the world of evil! A powerful write! ! (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
