As I Paused🕯🌺

If the cowards who wanted to declare a war were forced to fight in it on the front lines
I wonder how long it would take them to change their measly little minds
To them men are dispensable,they can be replaced
They're only needed to fight for their cause,never the human race
WAR!!! It stems from mankind's selfishness,and greed
White,black,yellow,brown,red,..no matter their faith,or creed
Get them out of power
Seize their wealth
And war cannot be declared
So many have died for our freedom
So many in a state of despair
So on this day at 11:00 Am,as I paused for a moment of silence,and took no regret
I thought of our freedoms,our liberties,...Lest We Forget🌺🙏✌️
"When mankind overcomes their love of power,
and realizes their power of love,mankind will know peace" Jimi Hendrix

      Thanks Finchy. My apologies for such a late reply✌ To which of your poems do you referr?

      • Finchy

        Probably all of them, I've only just started writing poems, and i guess I was under the misconception they need to rhyme, I've since been told by my Son and others, that's not the case, So I wrote the wind my first try and writing slightly different, No problem with the late reply any and all comments or discussions are always welcome
        thank you

        Yesssss! I love this because it's so true. The world would be a peaceful place if these were the consequences of our actions.

          Undoubtedly the very true words
          Peace so expensive
          From state to people it’s a luxury
