That Blessed Day

That Blessed Day


When the shuddering echo,
Of battle-cries vanish forever,
Under the victorious cheers
Of universal brotherhood,

When the cold murderous cannons,
Will be silenced by love, 
And in their barrels singing birds
Build their nests,

When the cruel wounds,
Mercilessly inflicted by barbaric wars,
Be healed once and for all
By human compassion,

When the medals of honor, 
Of  today’s heroes, 
Monuments of shame in the eyes,
Of the world appear,

When hatred and its siblings,
Are expelled from our kind hearts,
Thrown thus into the Tartarus
Of human condemnation,

When racial discriminations,
That divided us are obliterated,
By the sublime understanding,
Of our enlightened minds,


When upon the ravaged face
Of our long-suffered planet,
A place is found for each one of us
To live happily free,

That blessed day 
Will be the first day,
Of the long-awaited period,
OF PEACE ON EARTH!

    Much deserved feature. Your hopes are like many, and it's so beautiful the way you put it into words. If I may share with you, that these wishes appear as promises in the bible book of Revelation chapter 21 verse 4. Hope all is well. -Jasmine Murphy

    Thank you dear Jasmine for your visit and gracious comment, furthermore I thank you for directing me to the holy book! I am always in touch. Certain passages though rest with me in my heart: St Matthew 5: 48, Corinthians ep. 1, chapter 13, verses 1-13 and St John epist. 1 chapter 4. verses 7 and 16 among others. Now I will add yours as well! God bless you!

    I really like the idea of this work. It would be nice if the earth can achieve such peace that you articulated.

    Dear SKAT A, thank you for congratulating me for my poem, you so kind! For me peace, love and God are my favorite subjects. Happy to say that have been one of the founding members of two peace movements!
