RIP Peace

We all proclaim about peace, love and faith but do we practice it?

Love thy neighbors
The holy book says.
To kill one innocent,
Is to kill whole humanity
Another proclaims.

If non violence is
the supreme religion,
Then why can’t, without fear,
Women walk alone at night?
All of us faithfuls,
All of us who swear by
Almighty,
How do we digress,
Distort the meaning,
To fit our misdeeds.
Call ourselves
Protector of the faith,
Religious warriors,
Pro-lifers,
In the end
Destroy everything we touch.
Our faith and beliefs questioned.
And the silent majority
In the cocoon of our comfort,
Smug in our holier than thou complex,
Unable or unwilling
To face the reality.
All of us poor souls
Manipulated and brainwashed,
By the traders and interpreters
Of holy scriptures
Profiteers of the
Military Industrial complex,
Mortgaging peace.
Fight for our rights.
Does it matter
If those are right?
As long as it benefits
Our masters and manipulators.
And the silent majority
Silently survives.
RIP peace.

Poetry is my passion. I am not a methodical writer. I have no set topics to write about. What I feel, perceive, think about, I will like to share in this blog. I open my mind to the world. Like the weather, sometimes my poems are cloudy, sometimes stormy. I always like to see sunshine streaming through the leaves of trees, so I hope I can share some of those sunshine with my readers.

  1. This is very well written…
    “Then why can’t, without fear,
    Women walk alone at night?”
    That resonated with me a lot. Fortunately, it doesn’t worry me so much in the country I am in, but that’s the first thing that I have to think about when I think of travelling alone – how safe it would be for a solo female traveler. If that clause wasn’t there, I’d probably travel more, think less.
    Thank you for this poem, thought-provoking…

      1. Exactly… the fact that I know the country I live in makes me feel safe. Although I do feel completely safe in one other country. I like to walk and explore the local streets a lot, and not knowing what’s okay or safe is the thing about travelling alone…
