Down with the warmongers and aggressors

Down with the warmongers and aggressors

A Poem by S.zaynab.kamoonpury
"

( A poem I wrote in earlier months when muslims were being killed in Palestine, Syria, Iraq, but it still applies in recent refreshed genocides.  )

"
Wars round the corner,
wars at every bend
Could it be that all this warring
would never ever end?

Mass massacre and genocide
is what we fear and apprehend
Selfish apartheid oppressing poor folks
On suppressing others they depend!

Why can't folks borrow love
and peace too learn to lend?
For peace-loving persons
wars are hard to comprehend

But in which blessed century
will the world its ways amend?
Why not be all sincere
when peace they recommend?

Its hard to not avenge the dead
So to revenge and defend
some will feel the need to offend
(Yet the oppressed victims die more)

Why can't we all as Adam's progeny
simply unite and blend?
The world's tearing apart,
which saviour's gonna mend?
When the scissors of tyranny
all peace efforts ruthlessly rend!

When will all the saviours
from heavenly heaven descend?
So we watch and hear all war cries
unto thin air ascend!
When peace be the only choice,
the only probable trend!

Ah, instead of fending off war drums
why peace plans off we fend?
Why peace is so complicated
and double standards at every bend?

Will all state treasuries on aggression alone
their budgets, finances spend?
Why can't every foe we know
turn into a caring friend?

So we're stalked by friendship
and ambushed by love godsend!
A world where warlords
and  war heroes become zeroes
who in the first place did offend.

With peace may no nation
merely play and pretend!
Hypocrisy is calling freedom fighters terrorists
while State bombing and shelling they never end.

Dear Zaynab, I want you to read my words carefully.
As an Iranian person, who has felt living under the cruel regime ruling over Iran with his bones and skin, I can tell you that neither Iran's government truly cares for Palestinians and neither the so called humanitarians in Western countries care for human rights. The world is a big catastrophic tragedy that is hidden behind the comedy of human rights mentioned by western governments.
Iran's government has made a hell for Iranian people, and at the same time shows great mercy for Palestinians. Israel's government shows a propaganda of the current war and the global media supports their lies. Israel is no different to Nazi regime, the only difference is that Adolf Hitler wanted to kill Jewish people and deport them from their home in Europe but B.B Netanyaho wants to deport Palestinians. So you might ask what should our opinion be towards this issue?
I say that we should not curse Palestinians because of foolishness of Hamas and other groups. We must care for the "people", no matter they are Jewish, Muslim or Atheist. Unfortunately, politicians do not think as you and I do. They prioritize their own benefits and at last, their own country's benefit.
We, people of Asia, have lost the war. Today, we are modern slaves. We are ruled by dictators, who are tough towards their own people. At least, Western governors benefit their own people but here(Iran, Iraq, Syria, Gaza, Afghanistan and etc...), governors kill their own people but suddenly seem kind for the people of other countries. Why? For example Iran's government has many trained terrorists from Iraq, Syria and other Arabian countries to bring horror to Iranian people when they protest.
That's the sad story of today's world. We should be wise and not be naive. I've been reading and analyzing history for a long time. Trust me, we have no choice but to read history, to raise our knowledge and not to follow the media blindly. May peace and happiness come soon for the People of Gaza and those in Israel who are not a freelancer of Zionists.
A nice poem.
Best Wishes

Too many wars. Fantastic writing.

Posted 5 Months Ago


the atrocities of war are the privilege of the wealthy merchants sponsoring such inhuman tragedy
i hear your cry for peace ... a reasonable peace that will never come
women and children are most always the first victims of the terrors of war

everybody screams peace peace peace but it is only letters arranged in unrealistic definitions
there are no clear winners no lasting efforts to help provide support for those not of cause

we are the cruelest of the cruel
we have little if no respect for the values of life
death to the avengers rings as battle cry

killings for power for greed for the ignorance propagated by the few charged to protect is a failure ... complete and absolute failure

man has always created the victims of war
most based upon assumptions of one party against the others of opposite beliefs

the entire world and it's population is held ransom by those with their finger on the red buttons of death
'bomb them all let god sort them out' continues to be a rally call for the cruelest of the cruel so cleverly disguised in horror by those in need of ... being in fuking charge

only the warrior knows the true cost of our aggressions
all the rest is clutter impeding the hungers and thirsts of those without conscious thoughts

we like to show to explain to give excuse for our short comings all the while pointing the fingers to all others

war is power and power is what drives the worst of us all failing to understand we don't mean s**t to the tree

voltaire said it best ...
“I may not agree with what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

such shame most are selfish beings
such shame 'gods' are what keep us apart

good to see so many taking on this task of humanity

I was a soldier for 15 year. I saw Baghdad before and after the war. They destroyed the oldest and most beautiful city in our world. It is sad what men do. Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry.

You are welcome my friend. Us, who love to write. We must for the people, who cannot.
I've read many a poem before about such a thing as hideous as war ...I choose not to speak of politics in the contemporary, but I will say of conspiracies, coups, foreign lines, resources, power, religions...etc, they all seem to come from the same source ...Greed. You have written a genuine gem and article for display. I can almost hear Shakespeare's Shadow crawling throughout. All the elements that make a poem sing are present and accounted for. but in pondering over these "slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" I wonder what architects would create for destruction and did they not ponder over such a thing as the courage that allows us to spare ourselves by merely letting Death hammer away at its toy. Truly, "Conscience does make cowards of us all" It's perfectly placed and situated as to the question of "savior's descendant"I suppose we need not look any further than ourselves, and from there as Jimi said, "When the power of love overcomes the love of power the world will know peace" Thoroughly enjoyed and sorry for the delay. Many curious happenings about. lol. A beautiful poem about such an ugly thing...makes one wonder.

Hi Zaynab, I love this poem. It's a cry for peace. It is especially timely with the war happening between Israel and Hamas. My heart goes out to the Israelis and the Palestinians. I watched the news today about two captives being released. I hope the war does not escalate. I also care about the people in Ukraine and the conflict they have been going through with Russia. I love your first stanza:
Wars round the corner,
wars at every bend
Could it be that all this warring
would never ever end?

I liked another stanza too that asks if saviors will ever appear and bring peace. I hope so.

Wow! A heartfelt poem many of different cultures and faiths will wholeheartedly agree. I guess the answers are complicated because the causes of conflict are many and varied, but mainly driven by fear and greed, and let by dictators or politicians. Most ordinary citizens of every culture and every faith would choose the path of peace. Let’s not forget perspective, for example you wrote this because of Muslims being slaughtered yet the recent escalation in Israel started because of Muslim atrocities visited upon Jews and others? In reality power corrupts, fear and manipulation of fear the catalyst for many wars. Add greed and fear of famine and thirst and fear of attack and we have the perfect storm. Thank you for penning your plea for humanity to rule no matter your faith or culture.
