Unwritten Remedy (Poets For Peace) - Poem by Kelly Kurt

Politics and justice are not even a consideration
Wanton acts of unrestrained violence are focused
Radical faiths in seventh century propaganda
Instilled and inflamed as infants
Little prospect for alternatives
Born into belief, raised in collective influence
No more hate should be borne them
Then should be felt for the tsetse
Which does as it was nurtured to do
Literature ought to enhance life
Its truth and beauty should inspire harmony
Text must encourage goodwill
Ignorance overcome by Information
Legend understood as such
No book as tenet
No demand for terrorism

Topic(s) of this poem: life, peace, terrorism

    Why don't we understand, God is least concerned of our beliefs. Through the greatest men of their times, he just gave us laws to remain peaceful, to love each other, to live and let others live. What if one thinks Akhtar is cow, monkey or a donkey. Let him think, I am at lot not worried unless and until one disturbs my life and lives of my dear ones. I am constrained to think that behind the curtains of beliefs it has always been exploitation of others' resources that lead to so many wars. The nuclear weapons killed the orthodox wars and gave birth to proxy wars, we call it terror, because in this form of war innocent men, women and children are killed, and those who are responsible for it enjoy their lives in the best possible security arrangements.

    Yes indeed, proxy wars are a form of terrorism that superpowers employ. This is often validated by a form of religion known as patriotism.

    if everybody in this world reads poetry, terrorism will be a forgotten word.
    thanks Kelly

    Terrorism is the creation of superpower and now when they are tasting their own bitter medicine they are unable to gulp down their throat.....A thought provoking poem..10 (Report) Reply

    Of course there are many types of terrorism. All forms have in common the death and injury of innocents

  • Souren Mondal (11/22/2015 9:50:00 AM)

    Nothing quite 'creates' terrorists than mis-representation of religious texts.. For their God's sake those things are merely mythical stuff and should be take as such... Thank you for your poem Kelly... Only education and skeptical minds can change this bull****... (Report) Reply

    I am glad that I was understood. All religion is insanity of a sort. We don't need a book to tell us the right way to live. Thank you, Souren
