Terrorizing Terror

Terrorizing Terror

A Poem by Simple_mee


The wail of innocents

The blood-curdling shrieks

The pain of mothers who have lost their sons

The fury of families which are torn apart

The red spots of death

The pitched screams for help

All are the shreds of a wounded humanity.

A human is pitted against a human

A child is given to handle a gun

Endless tears are every moment shed

In the name of religion terror is spread.

But who suffers from this hatred

Who gains from this blood-lust

Pity is long vanishing

Evil is taking flight

Nations are drifting apart

The world is fast coming to a halt.

Heartless humans roam the streets,

Like robots blind, pitiless and Terrorizing...

I agree with Coyote Poetry.. I mean if you cross the border the people will greet you like long lost relatives.. Its only when a one sided agenda gains momentum or a bad political power starts playing out that the voices of the masses gets repressed.. People are dying.. People are losing loved ones.. For what??

Understanding the lessons put forth by this poem is the need of the hour in today's intolerant, communally-radioactive, and terrorizing world!

I can see similar thoughts as expressed by the first and last two stanzas of the poem "The Martyrs" by Tate Morgan (http://www.writerscafe.org/writing/aristate/441729/)

Wonderful write "Simple_mee" :)

I was a Soldier for 15 years. I was station all over the world. All the people I met were kind and wanted the same things I wanted. Food and shelter for their family. I believe the leaders must change their view. Common man and woman just want a safe place to live and safe place for children to grow up. I heard leaders demanding everything instead of offering hands of friendship and peace. Your poem is powerful. I see the same things.

I love the way this gathers pace as you read it, sort of builds up momentum before ending on somewhat of a cliffhanger,
"Heartless humans roam the streets,
Like robots blind, pitiless and Terrorizing..."
Brilliant writing!!
