Bird Of Peace - Poem by Shams Wahed Chowdhury

We captured the bird of peace.
And put it in the cage.
Thinking peace is to be exhibit.
As those books of law in our shelves we never read.

We put the white flag in exile.
To express the brightness of color,
To show more we can achieve.
We never think those colors will some day fade.

We take life.
Thinking few are expendable.
As we think they deserve it.
But we don’t know how hard it is to live.

We put away the music of peace.
And play the music of war.
We think we need it to be awake.
But we forget.
We need music of peace to sleep.

We crush the ground with our feet.
We think every one should hear our march.
Ground should tremble we think.
But we forget.
We are walking over our own grave.

Life forgot the meaning of forgiveness.
We think only cowards forgive.
But do u forget how many times we are been forgiven.
Even after we did the greatest sins.

But still we are too proud,
Too coward,
To show we are human too low.
Why cannot we
Face the reality and let it go.
