War And Peace - Poem by Paul Sebastian
Nefarious war, killing of innocents
Bloodied, injured and dead children
Screaming mothers, widows, in agony
Beat their breast, wishing to die in this infamy
Missile-blasted homes wrecked, climax despair
Horrific smashed-down structures stare
At barbaric primordial man glorifying war
Hasn't man through ages learnt at all?
Thousands lost lives, yet thirst for more!
What is there to gain at the end of it all?
What price to pay for territorial security?
Why this display of power superiority?
Does God ask for blood sacrifice at the altar of war?
Could cleansing of any kind be correcting God's flaw?
God's Command: ‘Thou shall not kill, ' is fatally flawed!
Crimes against humanity!
Man's insane vanity!
Can man go to war for sake of peace?
Can man's greed for power be appeased?
Man crawling back into ancient mentality!
Appalling international community's passivity!
Nations against nations, floods, natural disasters,
Famine, diseases, man playing god and masters!
Are all these signs of the Times?
Would man who can hear, hear, when He comes?
Pray God Almighty, God of Mercy and Peace
To intervene, and restore earth's peace!
