Treasure Island

Terrorism


The men in the millennium have developed a vain of brutality
Replete with massacres wars and battles the history explains its futility
terrorism in the name of freedom struggle
wars in the name of international security
The truth mocks with sarcasm
what we gain out by depriving humanity
Benevolence and forbearance forgotten in chaotic and clashing world
struggle for power and might hides all the shameful fold
Desire to dominate blinding and overwhelming shows clearly
that life on the planet has become bleak and bleary.
humanity has vanished from the human genome
the blood is replaced with cruel venom

Give peace a chance
having witnessed years of feeble violence and destruction
give peace a chance to change the entire situation
What come out of grenades and bombs
a bud shriveled to ashes before blooming up
to a rose
cries, yearning for peace, helplessness, pain, poverty
hunger and accruing woes
Why procrastination, give peace a chance

The world stands poised between peace and war
its time to sober and set tolerance that would chain wide and far
Give peace a chance.

    You paint a grim but true picture, unfortunately love has been replaced by greed for many people of our world. Today modern weapons make little men feel big and allow them to hurt and damage without thought for who they hurt. (Report) Reply
