World Scrambling For Peace


Hmmm, the world
Dabbling, rumbling
Fumbling, wimbling
Tumbling, crumbling
Grumbling, trembling
Battling, gambling
Bubbling, hustling
Shambling, rambling
Oh, Words are running out
And all scrambling for peace
With the intention
Confusion, frustration
Depletion, starvation
Education, eruption
Temptation, naturalization
Industrialization
Hammering at every corner
As disaster illuminate the world
And the crying for peace
Is in the mouth of every one
As nations rise and falls
Cities built and destroyed
It’s like a verb
Expressing only an action that has no end
Hmmm, the world
No longer of ours

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
