Lasting Peace - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Freedom's cherished
Oppression's opposed
Movements're created
To bring in a change.

No one knows precisely
What the change's for
But all they seem to need's
A set up that's different.

They fight, they burn
They destroy property
Public's inconvenienced
The dictator now deposed.

Promising seems the change
Enter now the disagreements
Who gets the power?
What party'll reign?

When differences arise
It's easy to get into
A vicious fighting mode
Hard it's to compromise.

All the welcome movements
Seem to end this way
Let good sense prevail
And bring in a lasting peace.

    A very thoughtful poem on the socio-political situation everywhere...

    Let good sense prevail
    And bring in a lasting peace.

    the lines quoted above are the essence of the whole poem...and the good sense has a wider implication, reminding me of Alexander Pope's vision as well in these lines:

    How vain are all these glories, all our pains,
    Unless good sense preserve what beauty gains

    thanks for the poem! ! !

    Will the world continue to exist if there is no peace? We all have to
    play a part in this ongoing process. Even if it begins in our families,
    communities, even within ourselves. Until we are willing to give up
    a right and put others first then peace will abound. A very potent write.

    Peace treaties are often made, which hardly anyone strives to abide! Peace talks are often held, but they end up as mere farce! Let everyone really feel that peace is liberty in tranquillity! A powerful write! ! (Report) Reply

    Reconcilliation is the key word, nobody seems to understand what reconcilliation means. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind. (Report) Reply
