A Poem by harman kour

hmm... this is always in my mind... yeah ALWAYS! Terror, violence i loathe it... i wish we together get our world rid of it as soon as possible...

Attack in London!
Twin blasts in Lahore!!
10 soldiers gunned down!!!
5 houses were burnt!!!!

Such never ending incidents of violence
Make headlines all the while
How long is it going to last?
Will it ever come to a halt?

What gives a man courage 
to slit other man's throat?
What makes him take up arms
to annihilate the throne?

Where does the audacity
To kill and to suppress
To dominate and depress come from???
Is it power? Is it money?
Is it religion? Is it revenge?

Why don't they ever give it a thought?
How much have we lost?
How much have they gained?

There are questions abound...
My mind is cluttered!!!
But they all go unanswered...
And my hopes are shattered!!!

Until I find my answers
I will incessantly keep praying
To make this world a better place to live in......

Author's Note

harman kour
i don't know if i have been able to express myself well or not... But these feelings come from the core of my heart... Violence leave us alone!!! The title is a question mark 'coz the poem itself is full of them... i hope it's not odd!!!

We are all inheritors of the pain our species provides the world

One hell of a thought! Humanity is lost somewhere or is either killed. Man is seriously a beast at times.
This is an issue which should be eradicated.

:) People who can't find answers or who have thoughts conflicting in their minds or who cannot justify what happens in the world, the world says they are split, they are mad! But I say they are fighting the "good fight"!

Let me reverberate your thoughts ---
"I don't know why I pray!
I don't know whom I pray!
But I now know -
The need to Pray!"

[Note: The Good Fight is the fight between good and evil both within and outside, as expressed in the novel "The Pilgrimage" by Paulo Coelho]

It takes anger to make a man or woman kill. For sake of family or self defense. Soldiers are trained to kill and act without mercy. Will be no peace in this world till the guns are put down and men/woman of peace run this world. Your poem is the dream of many. Too bad men who run the countries thinks threat first before a smile and a handshake. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

Great work!
Echoes my own concerns. What is becoming of this world? Terror is spreading at an alarming rate...
Ends on a very subtle note...
"Until I find my answers
I will incessantly keep praying
To make this world a better place to live in......"
