Treasure Island

Heather Burns


A Quest For Peace


As we look across the horizon view people
living in war torn countries homes bombed
business ruined their homeland destroyed.

we see the look of poverty and hopelessness
on their faces. Broken and sad.
Children clothed in rags, eating garbage,
drinking polluted water. Living far below sub-
standard.

Can this be God'a plan for life? I think not.
My Bible tells me, 'suffer not little children
come unto me, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven'.
In our every day walk, these words should ring
true in our ears, ever reminding us, 'suffer not'.

Overwhelmed in poverty there must be answers
found to help stabilize these lives. Bring a decent
life style to fruitatin. Every person is entitled
to such. This is God's gift to mankind.
The quest for peace and prosperity should take top
priority.
As The Peace Wisher Poet, AFZAL SHAUQ famous say,
'A friendly smile is the best weapon of war to fight
with'.
Let us join him and say, 'Come let us reason together.'
