Blood All Over


Blood spilled all over on ground
Bodies scattered and in mutilation found
Fresh wave of violence gaining round
Hatred, distrust reign with system sound

Who are people doing all criminal acts?
Why not all come to sense and react?
Is it the only way out to combat terrorism?
Are we not to be blamed for all kinds of “ism”?

Every time senseless killings take place
Still no system or alternatives to replace
Mutual distrust and hatred prevails
Love and kindness always fails

We need to have passion and brotherhood
Calm should prevail in vicinity and neighborhood
Why do we add fuel to wood?
When there shortage or no food?

Somebody may loose son, husband or father
We can’t allow it to go any further
What is happening somewhere should not make us bother?
Let us build new relation where love should only matter

Why humanity should suffer on this count?
When all sorts of tension and worries mount?
Let us place ourselves to the mercy of Almighty
Who will guide us to destiny and not feel pity

We are here not to create havoc and destroy
Never resort to unruly scene and others annoy
It is humanity that goes on in orderly convoy
Let us build and search ways to employ

    Excellent write, full of truth. Mans inability to solve his differences without conflict, is his greatest weakness. Thank you for writing this. Regards Bob (Report) Reply

    I don't understand how one can be cruel enough to take away the lives of others... are there no guilt or sorrow? No regrets and reluctance? Are there pleasure and joy? Hatred turns us into a creature far worse even the darkness found too great to control, so I beg to all in PoemHunter, take good care of your heart and live your life with good intentions... BEAUTIFUL WRITE.10. (Report) Reply

    'Blood spilled all over on ground' your poem is painful to read because of the truth it tells.As I write there're 2 wars spilling the blood of innocence men, women, and children. Where or who is the 'almighty'? Perhaps our hoping for 'it' to be rescued by the power of some unknown or myth, [ no respect to any one's belief just my personal opinion] seems to just give us a reason to relinquish our personal responsibilities. Hasmukh, without love in our hearts for the born and the unborn, there seems to be little hope for any changes in the minds and hearts of those who wishes to dominate and or suppress other human beings.In my country many pretend to care about the unborn but how can you be concern about the unborn but have no problem killing or having those that are born killed...it makes no sense to me.Anyway a good write. a 10+++ (Report) Reply

    Hasmukh, I have read your poem and all the comments. I am still very moved, cannot find what to say... I borrow the words from another reader:

    '... you've made a poem with blood and all your soul... the world needs more poets like you...'

    I wish more poets on PH would write like this! Thanks! (Report) Reply

    Sadly this will endure through out mankinds future as it has done in history... so long as the youth takes up the cause of his father instead of the wisdom in the lessons of war...
    Good poem... if only more were like you and took up the pen instead of the sword/gun/grenade/explosives/retribution. (Report) Reply

    This is a menace that has its tentacles spread across so many climes in the world…and it has no easy answer or solution…as the question is very complicated…with several forces and vested interests working at cross purposes. A collective and sustaining effort of a gargantuan proportion is required. Your cri de Coeur for peace, fraternity, and harmony is palpable and praiseworthy. (Report) Reply

    Can't our minds get moulded by only clay of love, sending envy, anger etc. away to
    domain of oblivion? To do away with terrorism all human beings should think alike.
    It may be an utopian thought, but not impossible, to cherish only goodness and percolate all across.Excellent. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
