Peace

The streets suffer vengeance
for supporting footprints;
like a betrayed friend;
ensanguined and decorated with dead bodies,

the king wakes up every morning 
only to win against his song of despair,
slicing arms, crumbling hopes,
to satisfy the inside fire,

war is war and not peace,
revenge does not equate but increments,
the world is falling in arms of souls and minds,

paralyzed.

  1. NO WAY OUT BUT IN

    No way to cease
    The perceived
    External
    Robotic
    Repetitive
    Combat of blind
    And mindless hatred
    Spewing forth war after war
    Thick clouds of noxious smoke
    Filling libraries with thick volumes
    Wise man authors detailing atrocities

    But here though
    Lies a chance
    Internal
    Nondifferential
    All-absorbing
    Unceasingly creative
    Returning to the source
    That gave us birth in return
    In here is to be found
    Peace eternal
    Within this
    Disturbing dream
    Or should I say nightmare
    Self-created as is all
