Namaste (Blogophilia 43.7)



Namaste

As Asaalam Alaikum

Shalom

May the peace of the Lord be with you.

 

Different ways to say the same thing.

So, we humans say these things

And act completely the opposite.

The Zealots want peace,

But only for themselves.

And because of this, 

War remains evergreen.

Patriots want freedom

But that is only found 

In death.

 

All those statements

Proclaiming peace

And those persist

In maintaining Hell.

 

If you are going 

Though Hell,

Keep going.

It will pass.

I promise.

  4. Well, that's one way of saying it... even if people aren't sincere.

  5. And then they make so much noise about Sony pictures getting hacked, which of course is not a good thing but it like totally overshadowed the tragedy of those innocents being slaughtered. We line in a strange and sad world.

    1. Zig Ziglar used have a line in one of his seminars about the use of distraction. The man was absolutely right.
