Mutual Respect!

Confusion surrounded her why were they arguing

friends that were so close split

finding no common ground where once so close

families from all nations

religion no barrier to coalition and mutual respect

where everybody could interject!

 

She had grown up here feeling safe a community

with here brothers with no unrest

until a year passed the mood had rapidly changed

mistrust and drugs use expanded

population grew a dived between groups emerged

noticeably the unrest and violence surged!

 

Battles in the once quiet streets became established

that the freedom to go anywhere

had gone what she had known was now a memory

the young were drawn into crime

once could go anywhere now no go zones created

a growing anger and hatred!

 

Murders of so much of the youth minds corrupted

it was as though a hidden agenda

being implicated to take away that peace and unity

where the community joined together

money ruled the poor are treated as a sub-culture

the rich peering upon us like a preying vulture!

 

But the tide was beginning to turn as they realised

it was amongst themselves

not the wealthy that assumed knew how they felt

could bring back the respect

lacking in a society that was aligned for the greedy

and not for the majority of needy!

 

Yet the war goes on as the gap surely forever spreads

those unseen continue to treat us like plebs!

Written!

There are countries written about in religious text

where ancient sites stand

identified through connection with holy books

that are wondrous and sacred

even after the centuries of constant hatred and war

now peace is what they need more!

 

But with conflicts embedded into hearts and minds

misery has become part of living

holy places to millions and home to millions more

in a these vast ravaged landscapes

many beliefs tearing these nations into shreds

as the violence continuously to spreads!

 

Peaceful coexistence seems to be only a theory

families killed and separated

amongst the olive groves palm trees and deserts

the proud humble and the meek

constant fear in the lands religions held so dear

can once again a saviour appear?

 

The familiar sounds of explosions and gunfire

how many more lives do we let expire?

 

Can mankind ever find the road to peace?
