For Heaven's Sake - Poem by Nosheen Irfan

Stop the bloodshed, the senseless war
Stop the genocide, the ruthless slaughter
This world is no place for irrational fight
What about love, brotherhood and light
The world needs Humanity to survive
Not this hatred, chaos and divide

There are people killing in the name of Faith
There are people killing for the sake of fun
There are people killing to show their might
There are people killing to get their right

What kind of world do we live in?
Where you hate someone for the color of his skin
And you fight someone for the beliefs he is born with
And you ridicule someone for the way he speaks
And you kill someone for the opinions he holds

For heaven's sake, grow up to be man
Not an animal that kills by instinct
Think of the lives you toy with
Think of the pain you inflict
For heaven's sake, let the world be
Don't spoil Nature's harmony
Don't paint the rainbow black.
