    Pain and grief to humanity a subject that widely in discussion and discussed in the past, present and likely so in future. To wipe out the grief and pain is to be real motivational factor and poet have said very nice words which gets a inner feeling of peace I think. (Report) Reply

    Thank you for this Lawrence, It's true no war. brings peace. I wrote a piece of satire a little while ago called 'A Lovely War' in which I talk about good old fashion pay back. That's what I believe we are experiencing now and when the kids who are the victims of this current convlict grow up? ? ? So we can expect more of the same in say twenty years. War breeds war, you can't mate dogs with cats and you can't marry war with peace. If you want peace practice peace. 10 (Report) Reply

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
