Muses lie in chamber where
Music and poetry well declare
Of human soul in all despair
At tragedies the heart to tear
For what price is worth a war?
Rending bodies tooth and claw
Bright promises that lay ahead
Lie in fields of blood soaked dead.
When was transit urge to kill?
To carved desk, paper ink and quill
Only clothing home and finery
Covered animals’ raw savagery
Sensitive to human plight
Mammalian tears at bloody sight
Reptilian brain mindless heeds
Cold balance of reasoned needs
Above beyond time’s history
Shipped contained biology
Loving hearts from blissful base
With aura peace - cruelty efface
Though their numbers may be few
Out of millions one or two
Beacons guide generations to see
Have same heroic possibility
(Inspired by Homer’s Iliad)
O Lord destroyer of every dark desire. Sweep out and clean every corner of my heart only leaving a little to express Thy glory. Grant that peace may reign supreme so that war and sufferings, outcomes of desires for power, may cease. May my little light shine so that Thy glory may beam.
