Futile Are Those Wars - Encourage Peace Not War In Syria

Rating: 5.0


Let there be no more of hatred
let there be no more of vengeance
let there be no foam of hostility
let there be no froth of anger;
let there be compliance to truth
to tradition, to culture, to law and rules,
let there be respect and honor
to class, to humanity, to fraternity and families;
let there be reverence and unity
in love, in each one's faith and worship
let there be a dawn and an awakening
that as man comes by birth
man goes away by death;
man disperses, vanishes forever
everything stays back on this earth
the treasures, the pleasures, the desires,
everything abandons the human body,
the greed, the anxiety, the quest disappears
from the human mind, from the human capacity.

So, let there be realizations
let there be no hatred among people
let there be no vengeance among countries
let there be no foam of hostility among cities
let there be no froth of anger in youth or armies;
let there be compliance to peace
let there be respect for brotherhood
let there be unity among nations
let there be a dawn, an awakening
that as the next generation succeeds
let their dreams become their hopes
and let everyone get to play his role
to achieve his own goal.

Yet man chooses not to forget his enemies
man chooses not to divert from his vengeance
thus reaping devastation, destruction
in his own neighborhood, in his own streets
just because he selects not to have tolerance
just because he lacks patience and acceptance;
and though man is aware many die in a war
many turn homeless, children become orphans
yet man insists on revenge
though he knows he is so helpless when calmness
has fallen asunder and that the realities
run perpendicular to life
and they stand stiff when they are unchangeable;
but birth and death run parallel
never touching each other, even until the end;
so live, exist, choose peace
choose to live by contentment.

Let there be no hatred
let there be no vengeance
let there be no foam of hostility
let there be no froth of anger
let there be compliance to peace
let there be respect for humanity
let there be unity among nations
let there be consistency
in your needs, in your perception
tomorrows keep coming
until one day....
until the final sunset of life sinks you
and takes away everything from you,
all your belongings, even your breath
and everything you held that was so precious
and restores sheer eternity to your soul
whether you were rich or poor
whether you were unknown or famous,
whether you were innocent or a sinner
even your own house death asks to vacate and go
futile are those wars of greed and power.
