on reading history

history
filled with war
raids on seacoasts
the siege of cities
thousands killed
enslaved
for the glory
of power hungry leaders
yesterday
today
tomorrow
human nature
they say
national security
they say
to ensure peace
they say
so easy
to say
to say

  1. To my thinking there is no need for war. This planet is full of resources, many of them not even yet tapped or utilized. Every single war that has ever been fought is about finding a way to enslave people and get them to do the bidding of the rich and powerful. Every single war is about this, no exception.

    Now, because of our vast technology, for the first time in human history, we have the ability to get smart, unite and wake up. Peace IS our option.

    Great poem!!!
