Stop The War - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Stop the War
War war war
Everywhere there is war
Take my pencil and begin to draw

War against women is uproar
War against religion is rather raw
War against people seems to have no cure
War against colour and there is more and more

Stop the War
War war war
There are countries without a bookstore
Every corner shouts out loud a drugstore

There are wars on country floors
They fight wars on the seashore
We fights wars that are hard-core
And wars only make the people poor

The ordinary suffer for there is no law
And decent women are treated like whores
Bones and skin are all torn to the core
Ruthless they are even if you beg on all fours

Therefore stop the War
Peace and love should be our Mentor
Therefore stop the War
And let us build a World that we can adore
Before we destroy our World for sure
And the beautiful before can no longer be restored

    Very rightly you cautioned the people all over the earth about continuous fighting and destroying this earth. Till it's mot late to rectify ourselves to prevail peace on earth. Thanks for sharing.
