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

The Stoneman Says

Tough is my exterior,

threatening is my appearance

and hardened my countenance,

but beneath all that lies

a tender heart

delicate than any flower

and clearer than any pond


I have mastered this outward pretence

through years of training

and now I have no will of my own


See through my toughened body,

the throbbing of my heart

apparent in my eyes

rescue me from the stone I have become

and make me the human I want to be
