Waking Up - Poem by shimon weinroth

on the road to peace,
there are many roadblocks
bumps and pot-holes
casualties of miss understanding
and unwillingness to behold

a place of no struggle and strife
claiming that war is the story of survival
too often the roads are washed out
by storms of fear
floods of doubt

rains of lies and deceit
outpouring of hate
drench and soak our minds
brainwash that there is no road
no way no route without war

so we have come to accept that hump
of propaganda on our backs
followed by subterfuge and diplomacy
even language betrayed us
at the Tower of Babel

now is the time to protest
there is a road for a better day
we can have a say pave a road
and change our ways at
