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.
