Devastation Of War - Poem by Pratheek Praveen Kumar in Calm Reflections

War, the greatest enemy of humankind,
And its lieutenant the dark death do find,
Hostilities and factions feast in killing
And millions hapless wounded and dying,
Alas, death and grief attack mostly those,
Who are poor and weak to withstand force.

Innumerable wars devastated the world
With guns, bombs, bows, spears and swords,
World wars did see innocent millions dead,
And millions wounded and wantonly bled,
Why human race suffer all this loss?
Why nations against each other cross?

A pledge to end war we all must take,
And to peace do need all people awake.
