Evil Destroyer

Who I ask will conquer evil?
Shall it be a King?
Shall it be a General?
Maybe a roman emperor in Nero’s robes?
A Knight
Men at arms, defending what’s right?

For millennium many have tried
To bring good will and peace
Upon us all
Defenders of interests, many would say
Yet here we falter, as masses still die
Lennon in grave still ponders why

Prophecies of faith, are seeds that grow slow
The universe has time, for us human kind to learn
That wealth is not gold or silver or pearls’ so white
We fight battles, for lines we draw in the sand
All in the name of honor, the past and Clan
We must share what we have and honor all, in these lands

Will Buddha or Gandhi bring us this peace?
Can they fight without sword or men at arms?
The secrets to life are hidden in view
For it’s your child who will be savior
Of one and all
For the meek shall truly conquer

When a mother stands up against invading tanks
When a child says no to soldiers with arms
When children dance in the streets with joy
Against the war drums that beat nearby
It’s these small acts, which will win the day
Victory will be Malala's way

Never be fooled by a smile so dear
The meek shall be the army
To inherit this earth
Love truly will conquer all
You for sure shall witness all, as I say
From here or the heavens above

    Thank you Arthur, for your thoughtful and kind, expressed thoughts “ Well said and nice poem! ”, “ Great write, never thought I would see the word "lawyers" in a poem! :) ”. I am able to see - through your poetry - that the acts that one has to witness, to endure in life have a profound and lasting effect upon the psyche, which come through in the devastatingly sad recollections that seem to be the essence of ( Screaming, You Do Not Know Me, Evil Destroyer, I Walk Alone - 1 year remake, etc., etc., have painted ) pictures that most of us here have been fortunate enough – as of yet, to that degree – to have had to suffer through and carry the scars for the rest of our lives .

    John Lennon and Yoko Ono said "give peace a chance". It seems like no one ever will. Good write.
