Hands In Air - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki

Hands in air

In news see some tanks
Next to them the soldiers
Engines off and hands up.

They take me into time
Stream of blood I recall
On blocks and asphalts.

Brothers and sisters in Europe
Those in peace, wealth, Salem
We have seen this for long…

We have seen much blood
Have left food ran for life
Fell the walls and the roofs
Bending Road turned valley…

Think enough is enough
Let us choose one shrine:
"Hey master kill the hate
Let's remove the revenge.
Send love-loads to remain."

I for one readily embrace this exchange.

Topic(s) of this poem: war and peace

    The words of this poem is very moving. And had me grasping for air. The hidden message came across very strongly. Everything always rear its ugly head in the end. Congratulation! ! ! Penning together such meaningful verses. (Report)Reply

    Enough is enough.

    For something so continuously sought after and universally desired, peace yet remains such a tenuous reality. The problems arises from humanity; one would think that, as you so poetically express, the solution might also arise from humanity.

    But the world will keep on waiting and hoping...

    Thank you for making us aware Nassy, it's so easy to get lost in our safe cocoon in the west.
    When will it end? Let us reach out in love and peace to all our brothers and sisters in war torn zones.
    Thank you for this deep heartfelt poem.
    Sometimes the work of a poet is to speak out to say enough is enough.

    Aloha Nassy...

    It is good to see one of your works on top my friend! So sad indeed alas... that this prose must expose the traits of all mankind in such heinous memories... the past relived again and again because a few corporations gain so much wealth from the killing of so many of our families... but will ending the will to kill for profit be enough? or must a third party be reintroduced to this earth and pass that final judgement upon the entire human species? I do so appreciate all of your efforts my brother to educate the mass of US... All of the best from this life, to you, and all of your relations... Michaelw1two
