Sonnet: Wars Must Cease- Thou Shalt Not Kill! - Poem by Dr. A.Celestine Raj Manohar M.D.,

If men keep killing fellow-men on earth
In wars that leaders start without reason,
God will deny through Nature any mirth,
And teach the human race, a good lesson!

What right has man to destroy human life?
God gave a soul to everyone by love;
He helps the human beings in all strife;
He cares for them forever from above!

All senseless killings ought to stop at once;
The wrath of God is more than Nature’s rage;
No lasting peace can be ushered by guns!
Each man must try to live akin a sage.

When sun, wind, rain can destroy man with ease,
All tendencies to kill by man must cease!

    funny that the leaders tend to abandon their reason for religious reasons. Deliberate irony? Naw, on a purely stylistic level this is good. (Report) Reply
