AS THE CLOCK OF WAR IS TICKING

AS THE CLOCK OF WAR IS TICKING 
(Let us do whatever we can to stop it!)


As the clock of war is ticking
Broader the smiles of death become
Cause the untimely passing away of souls is thinking
Onto the oblivion’s horrific land!

    The clock of WAR is ticking. In a WAR everyone suffers. I think that all we can do is pray. Thanks for sharing... Lucy

    Though chemical warfare is despicable, by retaliating, we are just creating MORE death and destruction... THEN where does it end? Your words are ominous dear friend!

    If history has taught us something is that wars cause other wars! Hope one day men would find a better way to resolve their differences than killing one-another ! Thank you my friend!

    Donna, let us hope not very far but since war is like the braking of a wild fire, you never know how far is going to spread! Thank you!

    Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping, into the future! Written and sang by Steve Miller band, this phrase explains your poem somewhat, however we are slipping into war within the future! I really love reading your incredible write this morning! What a powerful piece you have written Demetrios! Great Work!!

    I am so sorry dearest Eilleen for you being in harms way. We all should be close to you in spirit for no-one would like to be so close to the fire line! I for one will keep praying and writing for peace. May the Good Lord inspire those in power, from all sides, to do what is right and not to harm the innocent or anyone for the matter!
