Peshawar

A Poem by Rachelle
"

Prayers for peace, resolution and forgiveness.

"
not just statistics in the news
not just offspring of those with opposite views
religious? political? at what cost?
what kind of future have we lost?
the slaying of innocents a cowardly choice
when there exist peaceful ways to proclaim your voice.
each a life precious with destiny to fulfill
not anyone's to take by force nor by will.
when anger reigns and takes justice by hand
when seething vengeance is all we understand
an endless tornado to which evil dwells upon
the hopeless cycle spins - raging on and on.
when violence is the solution you succumb
the change you seek will never come.

That was an utterly deplorable incident. I vehemently detest it. Fills my heart with rage and helplessness.
Good write.
Thanks.

Whenever you suppress the rights of women children or by religion exclude others you set the seeds that will grow into that hatred that will fester till it cuts loose in anger upon the innocent.

You sing a beautiful message that I wish more would sing. You have a precious gift; not many are talented scientifically, mathematically, and linguistically; usually, it's one thing or another. I praise you for it. I love the fact that you choose for your poetry to rhyme. Keep up the good work.
ps
you have a beautifully contagious smile.

2014 was the year and we witness the most cruel action taken by humans...against innocent Angels. If it was part of Stone Age, we could have understand...hard to believe it happened just few month back, unbelievable.

The whole world need to be together, to fight these monsters.

They are worst form of humanity and for sure their souls will rot in hell!

You wrote with grace and pain, well done my friend.

Very toical and so much truth lay within the words. We live in a world that is at times not what we hope for.

Oh dear, That day I was blind with warm dears. Humanity was lost, That was horrible. How could they do that? so shame full. I was upset whole day.

Violence will never achieve that which you want, and that message is conveyed very dearly and passively to the reader through the lines of this poem. It's truly unfortunate and devastating that something of this nature has taken place; more so that there are actual people in the world who have the capacity to do this. It's already tragic that there are full-grown adults involved in the conflict, much less children. Children should never be involved in conflicts such as this. Well expressed.

Thank you, sir!
Rabid dogs on prowl will bite everyone in sight. Only thing which make them powerful is the people who do not raise the voice against them.

Religion is just a mask but that won't last for long.
Sad, really really sad. Is this how religion is saved, is this how superiority shown. A sad day for everyone on earth.

How does one win hearts to a cause? Certainly not this way. The seed sown was never about religion.
