War

Salute the Army of Peacemakers
Inner city soldiers
recklessly shoot love at the babies
Battlefield littered with books,and paintbrushes
Bang bang!
Head wounds,
Bullets of knowledge
sprout into trees, from which our children pick wisdom
Running barefoot,
Colouring the sky with their true selves.
A seed planted
A new army sprouts…

    Lively as a rally cry. Love these lines:

    Bullets of knowledge
    sprout into trees, from which our children pick wisdom
    Running barefoot,
    Colouring the sky with their true selves.

    The hope contained here for such proliferation and the joy of it — truly awesome. 🙂

  6. This is beautiful. Your poetry is a song. It’s universal language, the words here. “Recklessly shoot love at the babies” ….God. What a fine line.
