Peace And War - Poem by louis rams

58,000 americans died in the vietnam war
our soldiers being sent to far distant shores.
war is not the key to our salvation
let peace reign throughout every nation.

how much more tragedies must we see
before we try to save humanity.
don't you think we have enough disasters
without wars taken lives even faster.

we are now in the middle east
in a country where we are detested
in this country that is terrorist infested.

who do not care who they kill
and they say that it's allas will.

i do not believe that any god
can be so cruel
to use terrorist as a deadly tool.

so let us stop this fighting i pray
that peace will reign from this day.
it must spread throughout the world
for all to see, that this is the way
life is meant to be.

    I could feel this one coming from way down deep in your soul Louis. The point came across loud and clear. The destruction of the human spirit is something, to difficult to deal with. Once again you were able to get the point across very clearly, what most of us have trouble expressing. Thanks so much for your input. (Report) Reply

    You said it right, no holy book speaks about killing innocent people. War has many effects on our lives directly and indirectly. Everyone is wishing and hoping for peace. Well messaged. (Report) Reply
