Calling for Peace

Indian Bloggers



Why  do  they  crush  innocent  lives?

Foster  violence  and  glorify  knives,

Killing  people  in  HIS  name,

HE  who  loves  everyone  the  same,

Splitting  up  hearts  with  borders  and  regions,

Dissecting  names  to  dye  them  with  religions,

Millions  live  in  fear, dying  an  inch  every  day,

Carrying  the  burden  of  lives  they  lost  on  the  way,

Why  do  they  want  Jesus, Muhammad  and  Shiva  to  compete?

They  only  end  up  humiliating  the  gods  with  their  deceit,

Often  we  forget  the WHOs and  WHATs  that  we  have  lost,

Not  knowing  exactly  how  much  this  violence  would  cost,

Peace  can  only  be  a  distant  dream,

Until  we  step  up  to  the  occasion  like  a  team,

Let’s  pray  those  poor  souls  may  rest  in  peace,

Let  happiness  prevail  and  violence  may  cease,

Violence  may  cease…

    1. I guess peace has been reduced to a hypothetical concept….A distant dream of relatively less violence because there will be no end to killing…salute to all those brave soldiers who lay their lives in the pursuit of peace😊


  1. What is happening around the world is extremely tragic. The collaboration for peace seems to be a good way to spread awareness about peace, to tell the world that we are united no matter what….Your poem deals with the issue well.
