A prayer for peace
Peace and calm
A Poem by Coyote Poetry
Too much violence and hate. Who will show us the way to peace?
I pray daily God is watching and had concern. I saw the starvation in Africa and me and my unit dragged out 30 Christians beaten to death in Bosnian out of a river. Today my daughter graduated from High School and I wonder what did I leave for her with this world? We need the world to change direction. There are no borders or religion when children are being killed and hungry.
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
Angels watch me through the night,
And wake me with the morning light.
Peace cannot be kept by force. It can only be achieved by understanding.
You cannot change another race or country. Old ways are erased by new generation and ideas.
When you murder my father, brother and destroy my country. Are you a friend or enemy?
Hate create more hate, violence create more violence. The bombs and guns send to nations in conflict have no concern for the people in the way of war. If you don’t know. Great profit is made in war. Profiteer of hate and war control this world. Send food, water and medicine. Heal not kill.
“The children are the wealth of a nation. Teach them well. They are our future.”
“War is man’s sin. ” John Denver
I’m Ojibwa in heart and I feel the earth crying.
I see children dying and not enough people are screaming against.
I saw once great cities. Destroyed. Where are the people who lived in these cities?
Starvation and sickness killed millions of children yearly.
Who will cry for the children?
I raised my hands to the sky.
I do a silence prayer for peace and calm.
I burn the sage by the river.
I pray we stop the blood. I close my eyes and all I can see.
Is more blood a-coming.
Now I lay near the river.
I pray to the Gods of the river, the sky and the good earth.
Play send wisdom to our leaders.
War doesn’t lead to peace.
Peace is create by great people. Who stand for love and kindness.
Enough of war. No-more war.
I don’t want my child to go to war. Do you?
How much blood and hate is enough??
Heal not kill.
No words to say, other that in the sadness of reality, I continue to pray also. God bless you.
Yes John, Many of us are ready for a world of peace. War is not the answer. Thankfully, I do see more people, groups and projects working for peace. blessings, Brad
We need a billion more people. I pray for days when all kids are safe and sound. Thank you for reading and the comment.
I so agree with you, John. War solves nothing.
You are right. I hope one day not to be the sad Grandfather or father taking son or daughter to fight in war.
Every day I Walk Peace and send that Peace to this World. I refuse to see that Peace is still not here, and so look at flowers instead. Thank you, John. Blessings, Amy
We cannot give up. Maybe we will know peace when the world goes bankrupts. War is costly.
One can only HOPE, John. I will not give up! That is a given. xx Amy
They say. This year. World economy will be in the dumpster. Poor Spain and Greece already. USA is 17 trillion in debt. Time to fix your own country. Can’t save the world when your country is dying. I believe good will come from this. We can’t keep spending. Time for the whole world to slow down.
I agree, John. I WAS going to comment that the world already is bankrupt. I know human nature only too well, especially when greed is involved. It will most likely take a major SOMETHING to happen in order to shake people up and for them to change. Sometimes it takes a “crisis” to get the brick wall to break. Unless that is, Miracles do really happen and LOVE somehow will turn this world around. One again, can only HOPE. Love, Amy
of course! we all have something to contribute.
This was very heart wrenching for me to read this. But I thank you for opening my eyes again to remember we all have something to contribute to make this world a better place for us and our children.
May take one person at a time. But we must tried. Thank you for reading and the comment.
