I persist in crediting
I persist in crediting....
That breastfeeding hatred and animosity
Could barely occasion war atrocity
Demolish houses and blameless lives reap
Petrify crestfallen minds and infants' poignant grief
That airplanes,tanks and other war toys
Could ravage,destroy and only thieve joys
Annihilate life and identities liquidate
Amplify aghast mortals and not emancipate
That peace stirring words could promote
Long-term stability and eschew portentous faults
Make ravage and hearts assault
Imprison sensible souls and ferocity halt
For any lesion would eventually heal
Come to medicate and revenge conceal
But that words of malediction linger
Boost hostility and ran our trigger
You may say these are mere fantasies
Engaging in a wild-goose chase
Like a mansion built upon sand
But could enmity our worries appease ?
Remember,all things considered,we are all housed in the same boat.
