..Global Peace Theory / Afzal Shauq

Rating: 4.6
Based On..“a friendly smile is the best weapon of war to fight with… afzal shauq”

***
If and when the invincible book of norms is ignored?
If and when custom of humanity is burnt to dust?
Due to the wicked shadows of greed, lust and other evil doings,
We don’t have the right to be named as human beings.
Rather, we are brutal animals like vultures and crocodiles.
If we truly wish from the heart to be called humans of higher race,
Then we must not shrink when we are called “the children of Adam”.
For once we begin to consider ourselves as sons of Adam
Of this verdant mound, of this dry land, of this circling life –
Then we might also try to answer the ancient golden query of………
“Aren’t we cousins to each other? ” or “Aren’t we all brothers and sisters? ”
Hence, let’s all take initiatives to bridge up the gaps between hearts.
To connect all broken knots regardless of color, creed or race,
Via road to positivity, presenting cheerful aura of glowing smiles.
Respect to one another is a blooming string that ties warm cozy ends.
Letting social life be dance and sing melodiously with the collective actions.
Pleasing, filling, satisfying; the glaring shadows of humanity.
In which it has long been betrayed, jumped out of shell,
By the selfish wand and magnetic resonance of greed!

My having seen the flagged; 'Crescent & Star, ' along side your name, I assumed that you are or were birthed in Turkey. The birthplace of my parental families for over 500 years. I was born in the USA. I find it most difficult to agree with your poem whereas the lines generalize, after the relatively few had destroyed mostly all that were upon Earth. There would NOT be a 'web net' to have read your Global Peace Theory, nor any other efforts to end war or describe their un-victorious murderous battles. On the contrary; I will agree to disagree with your writing; > > 'We don't have the right to be named as human beings. Rather, we are brutal animals like vultures and crocodiles' No other creature forms Armies, fleshless wings to dropp WMDs. I speak in their defense. All other life, have their Earthly 'Right; to exist, I say, Compare 'Humans to Humans and then describe Evil as Evil with no other comparison that's not nearly viable. Earth hath no remorse for it's environmental terror nor does it discriminate. Nature will reflect the abuse brought upon it when disturbed. Likened the currant un-stopping of her ocean internal fossil wastes, un-disturbed for eons of time. Pollution is of another consequential problem. When relating to predators, then, I agree. WE as ungrateful animals, are the most treacherous and wasteful creatures on Earth 'The World is a terrible and dangerous place, not because of the Evil, but because of the people who do nothing about it' -Albert Einstein You also reference the biblical version of Human Creation, as Children of Adam what of all the other 'Life', Plant and our Mother Earth? As for 'Smile' being a Weapon (Metaphor) for Peace? I like to think about it as an 'Emotion' solely for happiness. Unless felt by individuals whom are of evil inherent character. Rather we interpret 'Inhumanity' and deal with the Evil 'Minorities' of the entire Earth nation populace. My own written endeavors are metaphoric solutions that translate for Peace having, Love, Empathy and Compassion prevail over flawed, religious and political tyrany. God is not he God is not she God is 'We' -Buddhism 'All things that have 'Self' are Godly' -Swami Satchidenanda (spell?) Universal Temple, NYC 1960 Thank you for sharing, Inspirational work ...louie levy 07.08.2010

10+ A great poem with deep compassion for the humanity! ...... humanity is burnt to dust? .....We don’t have the right to be named as human beings....like vultures and crocodiles! .......sing melodiously with the collective actions. YOUR WORDS ARE SIMPLY A HIGH-IMPACT FORCE that would certainly impact the human consciousness. I salute you for being so human! Thanks for inviting. No wonder you have 6 printed books to your credit, I will love to read them if I can lay my hands to them.Thanks

It is my fervert belief that the things that seperate us as humans as you mentioned in your poem, 'greed', 'race' are all social constructs, 'book of norms'. If we really look deep inside oursleves it is same blood that runs in our viens. If we can realise this then peace will no longer be a figment of our imagination- very thoughful poetry, which demands self reflection.
