Peace - Poem by Marie Causey


Johnny stood besides his brother
crying Tommy look after mother,
He was going to fight a bloody war
tears fell as he walked out the door

His mother prayed all night for peace
asked the lord to let the gun fire cease
innocent children taken from this life
pain explosions sharp cuts the knife

dying men decay in the ground
A solution to peace has to be found
no more explosion gun fire must end
love ones enemies, peace dear lord send

A future safe hope in our life
no more crying mothers or widowed wife
end it lord Jesus end it all here
bring world peace, end every races fear

Johnny died fighting in a bloody war
a waste of life WHY LORD WHAT FOR?
his mothers heart broken she too died
a bridge to peaceful lands too high and wide

    I red War and thought I'd see your opposite stance, but got the same! Good idea I thought, as different titles catch a different eye. James (Report) Reply
