SOL# DAY 5- WHY THERE IS ALWAYS ENOUGH FOR WAR BUT NOT PEACE?

Today's post comes from my Instagram scrolling where images of starvation, hunger, depravation, and bloodshed tear my soul apart, and it screeches -


WHY THERE IS ALWAYS ENOUGH FOR WAR, BUT NOT PEACE?


I am tired of living in guilt as I see my plate to the hilt

perhaps ones deserving a fill, emerge on the coast silent and still,

not knowing where to go, I roar and say, hey I am there, but alas

my voice is whisper for the oppressor, and he doesn't look at my pleading self as I am invisible to their egrigious self.


Oh, my heart churns and burns, for the blessed land is burning like hell!


I assert to one and all, when was a bullet cheaper than the millet, or the bomb cheaper than the womb?

Why is there enough for the ammunition but scarcity prevails for the human condition?

Why do you starve a child to death, while her mother pleads for a few more breaths?


My heart is broken but not defeated, I will keep roaring my questions to one and all, till all prevail in peace and harmony, for peace is always sufficient for all!

SOL#Day 31-Think about this...

Mike came running to his home, his mom smiled, and passed him a flying kiss, he caught it like a real gentleman, acknowledging and bending with a bow. Suddenly, there is a sound as if lions are roarin

Nadia, Your poem is powerful, as usual. I do believe this is what God is calling us to in this world:

"I will keep roaring my questions to one and all, till all prevail in peace and harmony, for peace is always sufficient for all!" Thank you for sharing.

Denise, I wish we all can roar and spread awareness about voices that are muted. Thanks for the support.
