Means Other Than Weapons - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

After being a victim of terror,
one cannot over rule the chances of a war,
but modern wars are total wars,
it's man who made nuclear weapons,
chemical weapons and biological weapons,
and these weapons are enough to destroy the world many times.
What's the solution?
'War is continuation of state policy by different means.'
What are these means?
These are psychological means,
economical means,
political means,
and many other such means.
Soviet Union was disintegrated,
but there was no war between United States and soviet Union,
Don't use hot fire,
fight the terror with different means,
other than weapons.
Let us hope soon the world will be changed,
come on let us change ourselves,
one by one when most of us are changed,
and during a full moon night,
we shall dream the world inhabited by fairies,
peace prevailing all over the world,
love has made every one so busy,
he doesn't get any time for hate,
let us hope the best,
let us hope a dawn with aurora of peace,
that awakens us to see,
our dream has been fulfilled!

    A poet's clarion call for love, hope and peace amongst the people of this world has a deeper meaning and a greater significance today than it ever had in the past. But the question remains as to how to tame the mindless murderers of innocent people? Can the survivors forget the carnage?
    and during a full moon night,
    we shall dream the world inhabited by fairies,
    peace prevailing all over the world,

    War is not the solution, but we see war all around, modern wars will be apocalyptical.. nuclear wars, biological wars, chemical wars and Man made of flesh and blood, how can we ever face this kind of onslaught.. peace and harmony is the only solution, hope the blind war hungry realize this soon.. thanks (Report) Reply
