Men of War

Teach not the little children war
Impede them not to learn my law
lest my wrath with fierceness come upon you

See innocence in confused eyes
Saddened, scared, these be deprived
and cannot fathom that which they must view

How long would last your power sought
when land and blood be brought to naught
Oh men of little faith

Consider ye the children's minds
to reinstate of love divine
lest darkness prevail at your gates

Surely all shall lose the fight
who trust alone in human might
forsaking righteousness and peace

What god speaks into your ear
to motivate unto despair
and destruction to increase

Fear, each of you, from every side
There is no place for souls to hide
not to escape the face of the Almighty

Though martyr's cries do reach my throne
they shed not blood as were their own
thus, listen to your hearts, Oh men misguided

For all upon the earth shall see
that bond and free shall bow the knee
and proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord

And if this faith men can concede
you all become the promised seed
of righteous Abraham

Wherefore then the battle's gain
If all have access to attain
who dare lift arms against his brother

Listen therefore not to deceit
Let your inheritance be meet
as to children who give honour to their mother

Oh men of war, your weapons yield
Replace with my well beloved shield
that your victory be the glory of the living God...


Galatians 3: 28-29:-  There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, 
                                   there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
                                   And if ye are Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs
                                   according to the promise.

    An awesome poem that condemns the men of war. Peace and tranquility are the greatest of all gifts a society can enjoy. Thanks for your heartwarming comments on my poem the Suicide Bomber. Love -Mohammad

    The scripture you used in summary at the end, "ye are all one in Christ" was so fitting for this splendid message of your poem.
