The raging beast of fear in darkness was
Its father: Terror  
Its mother: Ignorance, 
With the black milk of hate was it
By wrath was it, nurtured    
By fanaticism its character was forged 
Its soul saturated was with repugnance


The deformed prince of gloom, once matured, 
A menace to humanity grew up to be, 
Threatening the beacon of civilization to
Extinguish by:
All this, in the name of a God that the brute doesn’t
Even understand, 
It demanded the whole world to kneel in dread

Humanity didn’t succumb 
United, in its finest hour, marched on,
Proud and 
Sending thus the message to the kingdom of gloom that 
Its days are numbered

One ray of light, mightier it is than any amount of darkness 
And easily could obliterate beast’s obscure empire at a blink
Of the eye

*In memory of those who were slaughtered by the evil children 
of the beast, be they Christians, Muslims or Jews! 

**Dedicated to all those who marched in Paris and elsewhere 
and all those who felt In their heart, the solidarity with those who marched!

The whole world shouts: Je suis Charlie!

Just found this superb piece my friend. You are so right, monsters screaming they are Gods! Simply because they have no honor, no mercy and no true purpose other than destruction. Destruction taught by an evil book. God, the true God has nothing to do with these animals that are as dumb as a savage beast. Are we to let this evil reign supreme!?? Nay, we are by God's teachings to oppose it..

A powerful and moving poem and so true and honest. I have never understood how anyone could see such hate and destruction and something that God would want; I pray that we will all find a better way and very soon.

MY FRIEND, OWEN, THANK YOU SO MUCH for your courageous visit and for your concern! Unfortunately the majority of people are afraid even to raise their voice in protest let alone to have the stomach to fight for freedom! These people are mourning for a lost love or a poor dog that was hurt( both are fine themes and we should concern ourselves with them) but are not concerned for the real danger of our way of life! God bless you and God bless them as well!

Your poetry rings out the truth, Demetrios, the power is with them, that believe to live life is to respect difference, and others finding that all of those that do,, have an understanding of common decency..God not the focus for extremism and the urge to put the world to right at the end of a gun...powerful poetry you have created here,,God be with you....

GOD BLESS YOU, HARRY FOR CARING! It is disappointing to see how few people really care for issues that concern humanity. They, on the other hand, always ask other people to care about them. What an irony! They sould think about this when next time come to complain how miserable they are. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Nicely bone . . . the personification of evil makes it real . . . which it is but not victorious . . . light and love -- may they continue to shine through all our hearts. Much love dear friend. 7

DAVID, MY DEAR. FRIEND, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR CARING! You see my friend how indifferent people are for issues that concern the world! They prefer to talk about their own problems failing to realise that if the world has problems they are not going to be without problems themselves. GOD BLESS YOU! THANK YOU!

I am glad you are adding your voice Demetrious. We all need to push against the darkness until it is fully deminished.

MY VOICE My Friend, Richard, was not added, IT WAS there all the time: Few weeks ago, last year, the year before that and all the way back to 1970's! THANK YOU MY FRIEND for caring! You see people, when someone writes on. Important matters, they do not care. They wish to hear on the same personal themes over and over. They do not realise that their happiness depends on the happiness of others. GOD BLESS YOU!

Yes! Demetrios, the brute doesn’t even realize, God is Light and Love. I am very confused where they get that concept. The KKK is another, they claim to do it in the name of God. The rainbow of colors has just as much right here as they do. Red, Yellow, Black, Brown, and White. Blessings

THANK YOU FOR CARING! Dear Eve, I am thankful for your visit. All say they want a better world but when someone writes something concerning us all, nobody cares. They prefer listening to other things. God bless you, my friend.
