Less War More Peace.....

They set out with the goal of making history..
Yes, they did win, but there was no victory..

All their eyes saw was that they had captured some lands..
But not the sight of wailing mothers with bodies of their sons in their hands..

What did we achieve from this war? ? ? ?
I don't see any answers so far..

The result was a writing on the wall..
But then why they had to take this call..

The war is over and all is on its way..
But the memories of the long gone forever will stay..

Why does humanity always has to pay the fees? ? ? ?
Why can't there be LESS WAR, MORE PEACE? ? ? ?

    Yes, my friend, war is our own madness.
    When I was in my late teens I dreamt of changing the world.
    I dreamt of giving a speech like Martin Luther King Jr gave one.
    Along the way the way, I came to realise that this may not happen
    (even though a very small spark of that dream still lives on in my soul) .
    But even if it doesn; t happen I still want to change the world
    I came to realise that we really can make a difference
    Through small acts of kindness we can inspire the people around us.
    We can make a positive change in our micro-world. If many people do this,
    the world will be changed forever.
    If all young people with ideals would have kept believing in them, and have acted on them
    the world would be now so different.
    Keep your Ideals Ankit. Keep writing lovely messages like this in fluent poetry.
    You have talents. Keep inspiring the world
    Even though only few people tend to read our poems here, if our poetry inspires a few, that may be enough for a start.
    Wow, my comment gets too long. I love this poem very much. It is very well written and congrats with the contents.
