Two PEACE POEMS from India
I feel it a privilege to spread the message of Peace through peace poems on the occasion of International Day of Peace (21 September). As such, I furnish hereunder TWO of my poems exclusively composed to commemorate the International Day of Peace. It would be more effective if you can do the favor of spreading and sharing the message of peace through your mailing lists.
LET US JOIN HANDSPEACE
A global culture of peace
Should we aim to cultivate in each,
A potential force should we become
A move, the universe would welcome.
Irrespective of caste, creed and religion
Let us co-exist with love and concern,
With pride, let us hold the flags of peace
A harmonious era, let us unfold and see.
Imparting the message of peace and love
Let us pledge to be devoted and brave,
Our effort to fight for universal peace
Should scare and jolt the adverse forces.
Oh! What a delight, what a spectacle
Peace has such a delight and appeal,
Let us join hands for a genuine cause
To save humanity from conflict phase.
HOW FAR IS IT ….
The menacing clouds of war
Often pounce to create havoc,
The pigeons of peace
Scared and scattered, fly away.
The storm of hatred
The storm of enmity
The storm of death
The storm of destruction,
These devastating forces
Design the ugly face of war.
Men or women
Children or youth
Aged or the sick
Rich or the poor;
The ferocious WAR
Without care and concern
Without pity or parity
Extends its biased hand
Against the co-humans.
Ignoring the path of truce
The will and wish
Of the super powers
Ultimately would prevail.
It is the co-human
Who bears the brunt?
It is an act inhuman
That should be denounced.
On whom …
Should the blame be put?
On whom ….
Should the outcome be focused?
How far is it justified ….
To instill fear among citizens
To enforce self-declared laws
To massacre the innocents
To rain bombs on civilians
To create mass destructions
To treat civilians as criminals
To aggressively destabilize nations?
