Bows And Arrows - Poem by Obed dela Cruz

Bows and arrows work together.
One can’t work without the other.
Bows are used by men to target.
Arrows are used to hit target.

If the bows are like the fathers
And the arrows like the children,
Then it shall be a better world
If the User is the true God.

    Neither the bows
    Nor the arrows
    Its only half we men
    And half another women
    Who render this world tobe still a world
    In spite of unending sorrows
    Despite todays bullying tomorrows

    Conceptualized well.I give you a tenner.

    Great Write! Cupid shot the arrow in the name of LOVE!
    I do NOT beleive GOD ever shot an arrow..But if he ever does!
    I hope it is in the name of GOOD! A-Men!
