Once Again,This Time Boston

Updated on April 18, 2013

Once again,
This time Boston
Couldn't escape
the fiery bombs
and hate
As glasses, bricks, and bodies fly
I hold my head and wonder why.

We are in spring
Not yet in summer
So why the suckle of death reaps flowers???

I wonder why
We are in spring
Not yet in summer,
So the gold rays that
stream down through
could force clouds to take a powder?

I wonder why
only through shattered bodies,
we can see souls lie beneath?
and mothers mourn under the grief's wreath?

I wonder why
The world gone shallow and let hate reigns over love?

I wonder why
our lives can be taken only by lunatics?
and values of sons of liberty killed in cold blood by skiptics?

I wonder why
Brothers,Sisters
can't we live in peace as one?
and undo those illusions about you and me ?
Instead, in careless souls
disappear into sadness…
Let's create a world that celebrates
Gladness?

A letter of King Mohammed VI to President Obama ;

(.....)

...My warm condolences and sincere sympathy to the bereaved families of the victims and the American people, praying the Almighty to surround the victims with His holy mercy and give You, and their relatives, patience and consolation, and grant the injured speedy recovery.

Praying to the Almighty to protect you and the American people from all evil, please accept, Your Excellency, the President, my sincere feelings of solidarity and sympathy.1

      Peace is more beneficial and fruitful.Everyone gets with baskets full.As Jimi Hendrix says: When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.

      Thanks for the visit.

      Have wonderful weekend!

      Jealousy, greed, misunderstanding, power play and just plain cold heartedness, always seem to play a part in such awful disasters. I loved your poem and that you shared the letter from King Mohammed VI. Thank you, James! : )

      James Wolves,

      Fantastic work on poem, it was terribly sad but, it was good. I wish there was peace in the land but, I guess not. Nice tribute. Voted Up.

      Good thoughts my friend. As to why there can be no peace... think of all the opposites.
