~ Signature for Peace ~

pictures 091

So many peace treatises signed

so many wars fought since then,

none worked- the world is more

involved in destruction-

peace does not come by signature,

killing for what ends,displacing men-

women and children separated injured

helpless shelter less devastated

peace marches bomb blasted-

peace does not come by signature;

and I happily signed a tiny part

of a huge paper rolled out for

peace lovers writers poets,in a

continent green,where I felt comfort

but still peace does not come by signature;

but it smelt in the grass,in the air

in the sun,on the trees, for all seemed

pure and neat, people filled with care

honestly working serving -fair;

peace did not come by signature

Not in policy,law or traditional culture

peace did not come by signature-

nor by force,nor atomic nor nuclear;

it comes by equal rights -not torture

peace did not come by signature….
