Why?. What for?. When will it end?
Show us a sign that the enemy will bend!

Send us a sign Lord, the carnage is rife
End this pain, this suffering, this loss of life!

The religious are fighting for the right of belief
Send us that sign Lord – give us happy relief!

Depression and sadness reigns in our heart
A futile rejection right from the start!

‘Sinja’ the mountain- relief is denied
Mothers and babies - for God they have died!

Humanitarians are fighting to rescue and save
Christian soldiers in a war of the brave.

Ever since the first minor clan battles in the Stone Age war and killing has almost become a popular past time for humans. We will never be able to calculate (or comprehend) the numbers of lives that have been cut short due to fighting. There is no easy paths to world piece and this situation will get worse before any improvement happens. As we are now effectively in world war 3 we will have to end that before any piece can occur. Thanks for sharing and have a great day.

Sign of the times...Storms, floods the like. Are we being shown a sign of what's to come? Recently that prominent bridge in England that stood for may a year has been washed away - flattened! People are devastated that they have been hit not once but three times in a row!   ...and Frank is set to strike soon. Thanking you and wishing you a dry day. Winds are strong in E. SX.

Never ending
It is frightening Kitty and getting worse ~ it only takes 1 man to gather many like Hitler did ~ and they follow in fear for themselves.
This is a different kind of war (can we call it different) cruelness is in the air ~ these evil people will not bend they want to destroy they want power. We can only pray that God in his mercy will bring it to a close (not in destruction) which is fruitless ~ but for the sake of our childrens future in the years to come ~ God help them,

We need to weigh up the pros and cons. Ignorance is bliss when lead by men/women with no sense of reasoning. We the public know and see what is wrong but are powerless to do anything about it. The rulers are blind and are running around themselves like headless chickens. What can we do Blue but pray that the worst doesn't happen in our lifetime. Selfish it seems but se la vie! Off the soap box. thank you for your lovely comments and gifts. I truly am grateful! Have a sun shiney day!

Keep Praying
Yep,,,it's sad. Endless it seems. Seems like these people just dont have anything better to do besides cause mayhem. The Devil @ work? I think so. Nice prayer, Dear Kitty!! Thanks for sharing it with us. SL!! ~Andy

Never enough...
anti-war poems dear lady! Sadly we need them and I so wish the people that count like politicians who send those soldiers to war would take heed. Or even that the soldiers would drop their guns and shout "No more!" But this hasn't happened since that first caveman whacked his neighbor on the head with a bone, killed him and took his meat and his woman. Or if you wax biblical it would be when Cain slew Abel because he felt God preferred him. Sad isn't it? War doesn't end my dear, it merely grows in scope and death toll. "Fire next time", think about what that might mean and this from an avowed agnostic. It does make you wonder and (pardon me) pee in your pants a bit in fear! A fine, scary poem!


PS - RamSlade has it spot on too! Great song as is Eve Of Destruction which is sadly as meaningful today as it was back in Viet Nam days when it was written by a soldier!

Oh Mike sometimes I wonder why seemingly sensible people can't grasp the futility of wars. I look and see people dying for no reason. We need a complete re vamp of ideas and ideology ... or something before we are completely wiped out>

Eh . . .
"War! Yeah, say it again. War! Good Gawd what is it good for. Absolutely nothing." --1969 song by Edwin Starr more or less says it all.

None so blind as those who are swayed by the politicians of our day! Thank you for a meaningful feedback.
