Stop this genocide
Billions of dollars are being spent
To look for life in other planets
And trillions spent to kill life
On this one.
Stop this war, stop this genocide,
With hearts parched,terror-etched faces,
Blowing rings of hope,
In the midst of despair, nursing a dream to find the dead alive,
Among bomb blasts and the furies of war.
The cacophonies and atrocities around us
Are engulfing us alive,crying for mercy.
How long will the blood of martyred sons
Write the History of the world?
How long will scheming puppeteers
Play with the strings of chemical weapons.?
Look around……look at Syria,
The cry of mothers, loud and clear,
Asking world leaders to stop war,
Asking poets to write about peace
And musicians to play the tunes of love.
Look at the volcanoes sending ash
Billowing up to five kilo meters,
The huge forests burnt with the force of fire,
The fury of the winds, the waters
With their powers submerging all.
Mother Nature is revolting,
She is saying,
Stop this genocide.
