How Long The Guns

This Poem is dedicated to all those who have lost their lives in Orlando Carnage in the hands of hatred and violence. HOW LONG THE GUNS How long the Guns Would continue to excrete Their stream of hatred and death How long the innocents Would continue to be the target Of those Who were born like humans With the same sweet heart Which beats and breaths Similarly like a heart full of love But now some of these have converted Into nothing but the statue of stones Which likes the sounds of killing And hatred only. 01 From where this much of hatred Has emerged In such human minds and hearts To convert it into a barren land only Where grows the culture of hatred Violence and death On every branch of its thinking and deeds. 02 These very minds too Were made by the same almighty God Who gave us the gift of life and love And of kindness and compassion for all To spread love and peace Benevolence and compassion To sing the song of happiness and joy Even when the darkness surrounds They were taught to pray and sing The Song of love and compassion for all. 03 Are we on the right track? To give birth to such human minds Where love has lost Its ways and roots To shape rightly the minds and hearts So that these distracted souls Have become heartless like stones And try to seek peace of mind In killing the innocents Thinking that this the aim of their life Or we need to ponder On what actually went wrong Which needs to change our ways and means Which has given birth To such unquenched hatred and A life of death and killings and killings. 04 Do we need? To call once again Some Buddha and Jesus Or we need To change our upbringing? By giving more love and care to our children To bring back these lost souls On the track of love and kindness So that the world may live and flourish In the harmony of peace and happiness. 05 Ravindra K Kapoor Kanpur India 15th June 2016

    Ravindra, tho often portrayed as a violent gun culture, every citizen I know in Minnesota is peace loving and owns guns, our only defense against tyranny...the British attempted to confiscate our guns in 1776 and liberty prevailed, it won't happen again...our Constitution protects our right to self protection, something every tyrannical gov't has procurred...we must remain vigilant tho, as evil-doers continue to false-flag us, as Stalin openly used in his bag-of-tricks....jimbo
