World’s Clarion Call: Stop All Wars; Love Your Brethren!

Wars spread terror;
Wars cause horror;
Wars kill persons;
Wars maim people;
Wars pollute air;
Wars contaminate soil;
Wars destroy buildings;
Wars ravage cities;
Wars ruin countries;
Wars cause hatred;
Wars are expensive;
Wars escalate prices;
Wars create enemies;
Wars generate ill-will;
Wars instill mistrust;
Wars make the poor, poorer;
Wars make the world,
A difficult place to live in;
Don’t waste money on futile wars.

Love settles conflicts;
Love gets friends;
Love converts foes;
Love leads to dialogue;
Love spreads brotherhood;
Love brings lasting peace;
Love leads to progress;
Love is all-encompassing;
Love is the key to human problems;
Love rules the universe;
Love leads to heaven;
Stop the wars and love your brethren;
Science should improve man’s plight;
Unite against human calamities;
Fight diseases, poverty, and illiteracy;
Leaders should give up their ego;
The world should be free of fear;
Peaceful co-existence should bring all near;
Make the earth more habitable for all.
This is the world’s clarion call!

    Wow! Wow! Wow! This poem is beautiful. Love is the solution to all human's problems. Love is the opposite of wars. Wars are expensive, but love is even more. We can buy weapons or make them with ease. But we cannot buy love. It is very easy to make wars. But it is hard to make a world free from chaos. Today, the world is pleading for peace. Man is taking and forgetting, not giving and forgiving. Wars have conqured every place. But what can we do to prevent wars? People are wrapped up in their on selfish thoughts. There is no time for them to care for others. They don't even find time to pray before GOD. They only think about GOD when they are in trouble. We all are forgetting GOD when we have a good life, free from all misery.

    Beautiful poem........Love it! ! ! (Report) Reply

    All that you said in this poem is so rightly put. War does do that and love is just the opposite. Oh, if we would only love more than get into war. Wouldn't that just be a simple life? Anyway, you've done well. (Report) Reply

    Doc, nice thoughts....., and a fine, simplistic, anti-war concept, but for some strange reason, love won't control the radical jihadists who want to kill us. What do you think we should do about them.....? ? ? I guess we could just stand by and wait for them to bomb us now and then at their leisure...., but is that the way our countries should live our lives....? ? ? Best, T.M.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
