PEACE POWER: By Afzal Shauq

'Instead of
criticizing my love feelings
to the cause of peace
Isn’t it better
to open the hearts of those
being the children of
Eve and Adam
proudly consider me
as their own universal family member
and respect my words
omitted for them
from the core of my heart'

Peace Power
Here is a poem that I standardized at the request of my friend and fellow writer Afzal Shauq. Below my poem, are his powerful words :)

PEACE POWER: By Katherine MacDonald

I heed critisism from my fellow man,
that you cannot be a man of peace.
For mankind has faltered too heavily,
and we are born with killer instincts.

But I, a child of Eve and Adam,
have devoted my life
to what answers we seek.
Instead of critizing, embrace the answer,
that there is hope from a man of peace.

Because inside is a faith so strong,
that honestly believes in a healthy future.
From the core of my heart,
I've emitted all of my strengths,
in hopes we will find an answer.

    Title is saying very a lot. The strength of the peace
    is great and she to provide the man, with the peace,
    the development and the prosperity. Disagreement,
    fights, wars, are leading to nothing good. They are
    shattering our happiness, they are destroying love,
    are causing hate and the death. If there are a chance
    and an opportunity, to the agreement between people,
    among nations, one should use every situation, which
    is leading to the balance and always working for the peace.
    It is certainly profitable. Everyone which know the
    freedom know about it.
    Your poem very much wisely is written and everyone
    should read him. (10v.) Maria Barbara Korynt (Report) Reply

poet Ambrose Bierce

by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
