Attaining World Peace: Simple Artistic Solutions - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

Attaining World Peace: The truth is
we do not need supposed political leaders,
to lead us in the cause of peace,

we need poets painters sculptors,
song writers story tellers musicians philosophers;
we need minds creating images ideals of peace,

love compassion forgiveness beauty,
we need to join with one universal global humane heart mind,
in compassion love humility rejoicing in our shared humanity;

and force supposed political leaders,
to stop perpetrating justified conflict wars
upon target selected nations,
in thinly disguised wars to control rape resources,

increase elite mega rich individual bank balances
empowering minds egos craving incessant insipid
glutton mega wealth they can never spend
in millions of lifetimes;

minds ravenous for absolute power paid
for in blood money misery suffering, inflicted
upon innocent nations human populations must be opposed,

we must insist upon the attainment
preservation of world peace and strive towards
becoming angelic enlightened beings.

    Truly, Attaining World Peace: The truth is
    we do not need supposed political leaders,
    to lead us in the cause of peace,

    Truly, we need poets painters sculptors,
    song writers story tellers musicians philosophers;
    we need minds creating images ideals of peace,

    Wonderful imagery. Far from pursuing conventional methods, the poem puts forward an alternate plausible solution to attain world peace. Thanks for this amazing poem. (Report) Reply
