Peace Talks ii


We all need peace
No matter our joint-skies are packed
With alarming lightening and the thundering clouds
No matter our not-gods are behaving silly
Undeserving to rule the throne of hearts
The Director of the stage of life directs only love-stories
Written in the ink of peace
We are but the loyal actors
We shall act out the role of peace
We shall sing the notes of ease
Composed on a harp of love and joy
Though we are dwelling in terrible times
But we have the voices strong to say:
We are not “the hollow-men”
We are not “the stuffed-men”
Do not try to make us cry
We say NO to the war-cry…
Raised by the thundering clouds!

    Beautiful write..Common people never raise the war-cry and they suffer the most. What an irony! Peace must overshadow the political ambitions. (Report) Reply

    nice poem that advocates for peace under the 'joint-skies' of neighbours..wish n hope the 'thundering clouds' calm down sooner than later. '''''We shall sing the notes of ease
    Composed on a harp of love and joy''''' am humming these lines, (Report) Reply
