Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

**** Warlords ***

Political passion tends to churn the skies into an ocean
Robbed of all God’s destiny
Releasing rats of illusion
How many more lies need to be poured?
Heart beats defeated in war
Confusion beckons
Fighting merely for survival
Living far from the truth…
Peace lies weak amid all compactness
Struggling for his lives
Stabbing off ridiculous thrust
Painting blasphemous pictures
Wrapped with politeness and sweetness
It says “we’re comrades, but the lost comrades”
Complementing on each other
With poison kept in hands
Ego fed by the Master
Who was later clowned by the servants
When would this be ended?
How many more lives to be served
On dinner plates...


Lives that pierce and penetrate hearts
Curses hurled at you
Harvester of war seeds
You grow them and run…
The pleasure you gained out of others' tears
Burning the rocks of the Sun
To feel your adopted wolves that you freed
Now chewing you…
In a slow death
Did you realize what you have done?
Don’t you have a heart any more?
I feel so upset
For the Prince of truth,
Who could be lying dead
On eternity's plateau?


Black crows flying low above stinky corpses
Poured into wax molds
Their drippings emit foul smells
The heat could have grinded the crying
But I still see you’re hiding behind the moon
Laughing out loud at your victims,
Who are starting to freeze?
Drinking up infant’s sweat from the Sun’s shadows
Fulfilling your wild urge
How many more will you sacrifice?
Using friends as your shield
From millions of bullets
That come your way
And the rains raining blood
Flooding your damned soul
Their bloods that you've poured into the mold

Open your eyes oh Warlords!
The blood squeeze will submerge,
Your pride
Thrown into the Black hole
Staying for long in Hell
Baptizing you…
Could you atone for all the sins?
Your sins are larger than the flames of Hell!
How are you going to pay?


PS: May God helps us all! ! !
MAKE LOVE NOT WAR! * _ *

    Hi dear poet. I have had of your collaboration with another poet on hear who is Egi David Perdana of Indonesia. Sulaiman Mohd Yusof is your name and I am Maphumulo Mthokozisi N. as you know. Convey my greetings to your other friend and say I love her/him in God’s spirit. I like you to read the following comment s very carefully.

    It is such a very gift from God to hear that three of us have noticed that this world is now going out of control in the hands of politicians. All evil happenings that were once burn to our forefathers are now open.Guys actually you have just touch my soul. Now I like to talk from your quotes “It says “we’re comrades, but the lost comrades”
    Complementing on each other-With poison kept in hands’. These words make me to remember something about Jackop Zuma – Former South African Deputy President. H e has been a leader for past 20 years. But there came a time when people need him to become a president of a country. The enmity rose. The same comrades argued he cannot become a president of a country because he is uneducated. Series of cases were and are being held in court. Potential wars are up in place we are being told by the media – when this man might not become a president.

    I do agree that there is no truth in politics. Today the churches are collaborating with politics – to allow the same sex marriages. It does not end there – but there are also those who come to churches not to serve God but to serve their own separate interests. To the end of time people will say lets accept lord because the world has changed. Please guys, I am asking you on that matter. Let us stand up and correct this world. Let us tell people that the change that is seen is something that will stay a very little. God will soon and very soon come to destroy all evil doers. After that the world will become a very happy place.

    I am saying: tell your friend that we – three of us must now collaborate to write and alert people about New World of politics and evil.

    A brilliant and unique piece, one that could have arisen only from the angst of two souls thinking as one
    Congratulations!

    You have succed to keep a core of politic meaning, how to gain a power in their mind (Warlord) , with their ego: they give a welfare promise only, but people always hungry, no job and poor everywhere.

    Sulaiman, you and your collaborator have brilliantly and passionately tapped into a problem that has existed since man has inhabited this planet. You've captured poignantly the horrors resulting from the sociopathic narcissistic diabolical megalomaniacal minds/psyches of politicians, dictators, religious leaders, warlords, ad infinitum. In my not so humble opinion, nothing will ever change until we, the people, give up our mythologically convenient self-placating beliefs which lead to being herded like sheep and which generate and justify our hateful attitude toward others. In the name of our many gods we seek empowerment, separation by color and culture to justify cruelty and abandonment of others who, too, are all human beings and equal. We choose to remain primitive selfish animals, yet, we, from our very inner core, can be otherwise. Let every person vote against taking another life, period. Let every person let the love that propels us-but, which quite often, is buried and hidden-surface. Let each of us respect every living creature, human and otherwise. If that miracle were to happen, there'd be no Warlords, no wars. Our differences should be celebrated because the joy of learning and sharing new perspectives, new music, new languages, new horizons should be deliciously embraced and not condemned. We all must smile and combine. Or, smile and stay as we are, all of us. Let us share the earth's bounty. Don't elect ignorant leaders who eagerly declare war for economic reasons or otherwise. Thanks again! Carol

    This is pure poetry!

    To all those that feel otherwise, I say this: You are free to air your opinions, but I really liked this one. Does not matter if you dont understand. One day, we all grow up. And one day, we will all understand. Until then the world will continue to be what it is.

    Keep up the good work, Yusuf.

    Regards
    Ash (Rishi's Dad)
