flag of peace

it’s a truth which I don’t even try to deny,
whenever I see torture on week
my blood starts to boil,
that’s why I never dream to be an angel.

On one hand my blood boils
thinking about the viciousness of tormentors,
on the other hand the heart cries
thinking about the fragility of the tormented.

in this world thronged with wolves
angelic nature is a too heavy price
they are like fawns roaming
in a world overpopulated with wolves.

Always preferred self preservation,
first being strong enough to hold it,
then embracing the sweet peace,
so that I can always keep it.

There are few eras of human civilization that truly boils my blood, earlier there were two yesterday one more added.

Slavery and holocaust- even the thought of these two eras make me furious beyond words. How wolves slaughtered and plundered and human beings watched with their hands folded.

Next one added is Tibet, I was aware (very little) about the horrible history of this beautiful, peace-loving country. Yesterday I watched “seven years in Tibet” and a veil was removed. How a beautiful country and its culture was destroyed by disgusting tyrants.

So many cultures have been ruined by human beings, the Red Indian, Greek, Roman, now another name added.

,I have always admired Buddhism and after watching this movie I truly fell in love with the beautiful people of this country.

It’s a sheer disgust for human race that such countries have to suffer. A repulsive shame for all of us!

Hope these things stop happening immediately.
