Demands for Calm


Demands for Calm




In this chaos and turmoil,
What hope of sanity ?
Pray then, with passion,
With a defiant demand to love,
That this violence give way...

Bring calmness to the mind,
Please soldiers, use your mercy.
They are your brothers,
Your sisters, your mothers,
And they need you to think.

What world will there be,
When you have slain them all ?
How will you sleep at night,
With their ghosts visiting you,
Constantly begging for a chance...?



A prayer for Syria.
