War and Peace

War and Peace

Ceaseless bombs and raining bullets,
Innocent lives sadly became the destined targets,
Incessant pleas, in vain fell on deaf ears,
Blood-bathed bodies seemed muted with dried-up tears,
Fractured homes collapsed with irreparable damages,
The songs of earth were replete with dismal dirges.

~They said war helped to establish peace.

Hark! Peace ensued by silencing breaths,
Silence prevailed by the mounting deaths,
With life and merriment, all gone,
A haunting peace reigned during the monstrous dawn,
Vacuum invaded and the noises did cease,
The quiet graves bloomed with emblems of peace.

~Vivid rainbows painted the carmine sky.

Up in the firmament, ‘midst divine angels,
Welcomed by drum rolls and jingling bells,
Freed souls entered the gates of heaven,
Finding refuge in the safe haven,
Kith and kin united across borderless boundaries,
And weaved a new chapter filled with tranquility and peace.
