War…For What?

War for what?
What purpose does it serve?

War spurns hatred between neighbors, brothers and friends
War takes away our sons and our daughters
Never to be returned to see another day

War for what?
What purpose does it serve?

War stimulates greed in the few and stupidity in the many
The need to control, to steal, to conquer to hate
Boarders crossed, cities crushed and rape and pillage abound

War for what?
What purpose does it serve?

War crushes all in its path, no sacred towers or history remains
War blinds the innocent and leaves children alone, no family no future, who cares?
Graves are fed by its lust for death and tombstones lie abandoned and alone

War for what?
Why do we need you?

War has no place in our world it’s archaic in its nature, outdated and pointless
We follow the drums of power, blinded and brainwashed by their messages of hatred and fear
To follow like sheep, to fight their so-called fight, for freedom, for country, for what?
To win or to loose, for what?
No end is in sight, war after war fuels another and on we go like lemmings to the cliff
As our friends fall and our loved ones are lost, for what?
For the power and the greed of the few who take what they want and leave us in tears
Alone, to grieve, to pick up the pieces, to wait for their call to do their dirty work again
War…. It must End…Today!

flanders fields

As I sit here writing I take a moment in quiet contemplation to pray for all the valiant men and women who gave their lives in wars around the world since the dawn of time and in this year the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I in 1914 I pray for the souls of the lost,
‘Lest We Forget’

lest-we-forget

Namaste with Love
Always

  • Fighting is useless in any form, the fighting of disease is to no avail since it will return again and again. What we need is change of culture, change of lifestyle learning to live with nature, learning to live with each other in love, peace, harmony and respect.
    Ebola is. Learn to live with it! Love David
