Disregard War

 

(Just an opinion against war)

Do not ever thirst for war, friends

Do not seek the ‘reversal’ of world maps

Substitute distaste for tolerance

and replace loathing with empathy

 

Spare a thought about the land destroyed by war

The heavenly landscape turned into a desert

Look at how the defeated are treated,

Women dishonoured and children slighted

The vanquished will tell you

that they do not seek glory anymore,

their half-dead spirits

only want to be left in peace

Your eyes that closed in a prayer for your country’s victory

would then brim with tears for your enemy

and you will become one of them

All of the civilised humanity united

against the enemy called war

    • I’d recently read about an Asian country affected by war. The tale of survivors were so moving..Even those who took part valiantly now say that they do not want conflict and that they had lost so much…thank you so much for the comment..

    • Many countries do seem to want to erase some countries out of the world map, don’t they? and there are like-minded people even in the enemy countries..and war is never a solution..Thank you so much for the comment, Penny
