** Peace Not War ** Poem by Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

** Peace Not War **

Rating: 4.0

Make love not war
Sleep enough wakes up afresh
Reaching for Heaven’s door
Set aside your stress

We’re breathing the same air
Fragile and vulnerable
What's to compare
What's to grumble

Different religion
Different race
What’s the distinction?
On your face

Is there any difference?
In what you call the greater
What makes you coherence?
To say you’re better

Adversity of conqueror
Influence your paradigm
To create terror
Annexing the emblem

Perception of one’s intelligences
Doesn’t show in your color
What's to display of instances
What's to exhibit of power

Walking tall churning ego
Dragging your pride along
There you go
Embezzling dignities you throng

Common world we live
Obvious language we speak
Let us treasure this gift
Don’t let it loose even a wreak

All nation and continent
The same feets on the ground
Live in peace and jubilant
The past and future will not hound

Unique use of metaphors, simple rhetoric form used well, each stanza end stands out well pronounced. Take time to read my 'God is God' and 'War'
