This poem is a plea for peace and understanding in a world torn apart by war and strife.
In the shadows of history’s pages, we find,
A tale of strife, of battles unkind,
For the cause of war, a bitter seed sown,
In pushing against others, we reap what’s sown.
In the clash of nations, we oftentimes see,
A cycle of conflict, endless enmity,
For pushing and shoving, with hearts so unkind,
Only perpetuates the wounds left behind.
Yet, in the depths of our souls, we must find,
A yearning for peace, for ties that bind,
For the world to progress, for harmony’s grace,
We must move beyond aggression and embrace a new space.
Let’s listen to other voices, to stories untold,
Seek understanding, let compassion unfold,
For in the heart of acceptance, we find our way,
To prevent conflict and let peace hold sway.
No more the clenched fists, the anger, the hate,
Let’s negotiate, communicate, create,
Solutions to problems, together we stand,
United, we thrive, hand in hand.
The world must move forward, away from the fight,
Towards a future where all is set right,
In the embrace of empathy, love, and care,
We’ll find a world where peace is our shared affair.
