War: A Threat to Humanity

War: A Threat to Humanity

A Poem by Raj Sahu
"

This poems narrates a story and conveys a message to the people against war.

"

There was a kind man,
Soft and noble his soul was!
Before his eyes was a clear goal,
To recruit in army for a particular cause.

He wished to experience the scene,
The scene of the massive war!
So excited he was from the first day,
As the bitter reality was too far.

The day arrived with a bright sky,
Brighter was the man's curiosity.
He got ready with full of zeal,
Unaware of the war's brutality.

Standing steady at the frontier,
Holding his sword like a thunder bolt!
Both armies broke down at once
And suddenly the man came to a halt.

The bright sky puffed into cloud,
A cloud full of groaning dust.
Recklessly the bodies were falling down
And the war tragedy was at must.

 Bloody, bloody the battlefield was,
Filled with innumerable heads.
Screams and shrieks were just common
But there were none from death beds.

On a courageous path, the soldiers followed,
Each carrying a brave brave heart.
But on looking at the massacre scene,
The kind man astonished on his part.

Slowly, slowly the man comprehend
The cruelty of the massive war.
He bent on his knees at the once
And threw his sword very far.

He raised his eyes to heaven,
And cried in a very loud voice;
"Is this the humanity, my Lord?"
A sudden silence spread over noise.

At horizon a beautiful bird crossed,
The beautiful bird came out as a Dove.
Carrying the serenity over her wings,
Along with the message of peace and love.

The bloody sky lost down its lust
And a whiteness smeared all around.
The Dove seems like a messenger of God;
Sent down when he heard the cry and sound.

With her long and charming wings,
She covered the entire field.
The kind man was fully surprised
As a soldier gets his protective shield.

In a moment of vision, the field vanished,
A Dreamworld took its place.
The Dove took the kind man there
And there was a comfort on his face.

The Dove quoth to the man,
"Be kind, be peaceful or unless you will fall,
For God has made you people 
To praise him and love all."

The kind man understood the very message,
He swore to practice peace and harmony.
To walk long and preach all these,
Became his life-long ceremony.

Wow- amazing- you are so right- God is a kind loving God but he allows justice to prevail on His grounds and conditions- live one another- war never did good and man lost in the ways of the flesh being more harm than good- we given our own wills need to choose right- great words love the dove and the spiritual connotation used here- God is amazing🌹

War is never a way to negotiate but peace is. You wrote it in a very well manner by weaving a ballad in luring style. I like your work.

Thank you for your motivating words!
A nicely told narrative which depicts the futility of war. The brutality and carnage and hatred linger in the minds long after the war is over. Everything should be done to promote peace. We are all brothers and sisters sharing the same planet. You have compose d this well and your poem has a strong message woven into its fabric. Thank you.

I was a bit surprised what the kind man wanted war but glad he eventually awoke his kindness after seeing bloodshed and peace and love brought about in your message and moral wow. Thumbs up for a super story poem. Keep it up.

I do insist you to read my work 'Starved Stomachs' and give comment. I wish you may like it.
If only it could be so simple to stop war once it has begun

Sending out aircraft loaded with bombs
Pilots knowing if ever they were told to drop them
There would have no base to return to
No base any where
