No More Bloodshed

Posted in Arts by KANERE on February 11, 2011

Five decades of war

Millions of people lost life

Birds and wild animals feed on

Both old and young suffered in pain

The blood of the innocents flows to the rivers

Let the few liberate for the freedom

No more bloodshed. (more…)

SOME WHERE

Posted in Arts by KANERE on June 29, 2010

Without expectations

ever imagination

spontaneously comes

ideas that breaks the silence

Stretched, like a thread.

 

Where they have been?

Where were they existing?

How it flows and originates?

Oh! I get them, once,

Once in a blue moon,

Only for seconds. surrendered me, to exploit

to expand, to philosophies

wisely, to understand human wise

To see, feel, sharing the feelings

Contradictory world.

i guess human is wise

his wise ness which brought total mess.

His deaf and dampness

makes one dear then other fosterness.

The philosophy intellectual

survival of the fitness

eat the weak,

rise as strong as lion,

terrorize and bark.

so as human being,

longing,

the old – early world

No body knows

where the idea comes,

experience, knowledge, intuitions

some time, some way

it comes to observe

some enjoy, others suffers….
