If Love is Just Silly

If Love is Just Silly

A Poem by victoria

just something for fun :)

If love is just silly,
then weapons are dumb.
Forget ammunition,
shoot roses, not guns.

War harms the strongest,
peace mends the wounds.
If love is the weapon,
we'll be free soon.

I like the playful feel to this. Such an optimistic piece. Well done. (The only thing I've read on the Cafe today that's made me smile)

Very short and sweet, I like it! And I like the impulsiveness of the fact that it sort of just popped into your head. I also like the flow and sharpness of the poem too. Good write :D

Perfect length - succint and pure. I readily agree with the message too; war wastes so many souls. Great poem.

this is very cute, short but nicely said. Big message in so few words, but I guess not much has to be said to get the point across. Loved it

Dear Writer,

Short poems are just short whims that pop into our head at a minutes notice. In my opinion, short poems are better because they convey the most when written properly. I can't say any real critique for this, except to always keep writing. The more you keep writing, the more you will grow. Learn that there is no level of perfection, so even if people expect you to always do your best regardless if you're hurting, remember these words: "All I can, all I could ever be, is all worthless, until I learn where I be."

Peace is not silly. I agree with Marshall down below that Peace will never occur because the Bible even says it won't. Benjamin Franklin once said something to the effect that, "freedom is worthless unless you have truth." I believe you can also restate it as, "peace is worthless unless you have unity." Of what worth is peace without a foundation? Of what worth is peace if the sword hath lost its tip?

Eh. Me and my ramblings. War is horrible, but peace is impossible. Peace will only exist in life after death, this is what I know and believe. Sure, for "Christianity" we in America have had a long interval of freedom peace, but peace will never end until the flesh is nailed dead. Good job writing, continue it! 9.2/10.

A friend, a writer, and a person,
S. W. Scaggs

Not many words are used but you still make a great point. I loved the flow and the meaning within your words. Nicely done.
