Let's Give The World A Chance - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

tanka:

different gods
different worlds
in the shards of war
i try looking for
one god for peace

free verse poetry;

Let's give peace a chance
Let's go out and dance
Let's wind up our fight
To terminate our plight
Let's give ourselves a chance
Let's let down our hair and dance
To the music of love and peace
Let's not be aliens in our own land
Let's close ranks and be friends
No more war, no more pain
Let's make our mothers happy
Our children smile
And our fathers proud
Let's spread our love to each other
From that purest corner of our heart
Where the Almighty has dwelt
And taught us since the day
He brought us to this world
Let's give him a chance too
To make his revelations to us
Let's us make this earth
a wonderful place for each other
So that our children too
Can be proud of us and partake
in this song
let's give our children a chance
let's give ourselves a chance
le's give allah, jehovah, buddha,
and every god a chance
in our quest for truth, peace

    You clearly express your thoughts. There is one god and He requires exclusive devotion and worship. True peace will come when He sends his son to earth to destroy the wicked at the war of wars, Armageddon. You can know the true God by reading some of my writings. thank you, keep writing.
