A Final Ride in Kabul

For the families 

 

A vehicle should be meant for all

Who would have thought

They would fall

Into treacherous hands?

Now

Their lands

Are

Again

stained with blood

And scarred

In debris.

When will they, will we?

See

Another way

A better way

Free

From violence and

Ruinous hate.

When will it abate?

That peace may reign

And vehicles will be

Not weapons

But

For all

To travel free

Again.

  1. Hi Simon – very evocatively told about a dreadful appalling situation found in too many areas of the world. Good for you being able to express your (and my) views in a poem … it’s just frightening the way the world in places is going. Not good – Hilary

  2. This is so beautiful and profound but unfortunately its utopian. Man would never cease warring, I feel. There will always be something or someone else to conquer. Always…

    1. I wish you were wrong. But…. we both know you are right. The battle continues, even within the caverns of each of our inner selves. Thanks for commenting, Pradita. It’s always illuminating and often entertaining 😁
