Two PEACE POEMS from India

Dear Promoters of Universal Peace


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.


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.


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?
