peace treaty…


tear it down
leave no stone standing
salt the earth
so no seeds of hope
can ever grow
in the hearts of children
let the children feel
misery’s cat-o’-nine-tails
upon their backs
have the flesh of their dreams
torn from within their bodies
deprive them of laughter
pour poison into the well of faith
that nourishes their souls
feed them upon fear
and degradation
our enemy
on bended knees
cries out for peace
peace of mind
for those they love
their children

  1. Golda Meir: “There will be peace in the Middle East only when the Arabs love their children more than they hate Israel.”

    Profound poem.

  2. As long as we are blinded by hatred, there will be no peace in our hearts and the children of future generations will know no hope… the children, the innocent…the losers. Too sad. Heartspell

  3. really – who does lose with all the political mismash??? The innocent – the hope of the next generation

    thanks C

  4. Excellent message. I like the contradiction of the last line with the message of the rest of the poem. Our world leaders take away all the things essential to a children and yet they too have children of their own they love more than anything. Good point raised 🙂
