Love and Wisdom

A sobbing mother, a hopeless father

Pleading for mercy for a starving son or daughter.

From Mogadishu to Afghanistan

The suffering is a language all understand.

War is not the answer to deem a noble plan.

Exercise more tolerance or kind humility

Demonstrate respect for all humanity.

Global victims have grown weary, so very tired

Dethroning dictators they once foolishly admired

When will the tyrants see the world has had enough?

The populace is changing, justice is springing up

The evil has not won and it never will

No matter how many innocent humans are killed

Righteousness and mercy do not discriminate

Only love and wisdom can peacefully dictate.

  1. Beautifully Said…

  2. A wonderfully expressed piece. Reminded me of a recording by one of my favorite jazz groups Incognito. Apropos: ‘This Thing Called Love’
