Why do we have to have borders  and wars everywhere?


Doesn’t the earth belong to You and Me?

So much darkness in so many hearts!

Why are the clothes of this world,

Stained by man’s blood?


Screams echo through the corridors of my soul

Shattered words of love

Cling helplessly in vacant eyes~~

Why are there locks on every heart?

Why is there rust on every lock?

Why are there borders everywhere?

About Zakiah

I write poetry and some fiction, have a book that was published in 2012. . . Stray Thoughts/Winged Words. I have four grandchildren, ages 16 and half to almost 16 months. I love the ocean, and grew up along the Indian Ocean in South India. I am a retired physician. Don't know much else to say. Thanks for reading. That has been my profile for so many years. My daughter Saadia a great poet and story teller, has two sons; the oldest grandson is now 21 years old, doing architectural engineering at Missouri S&T in Rolla MO. His younger brother is almost 16 and taking driving lessons seriously and is in High School. The other two grandsons, children of my son Sayeed, are 9 and 5. I have recently published another book titled Gulistan, A home of Flowers. It has stories and memories of my childhood and of a distant land which I still consider as my HOME., even though I have lived here in the US for more than fifty years. Hope to see you on my blog.

    All the right questions but I don’t have any of the answers!

    I wish there were answers! California’s population is fast approaching 50% Hispanic — it is horrible to see half our people afraid of deportation of one or more family members. We are doing what we can, but it doesn’t meet the damage the Federal government is doing!

    Humans are, by nature, tribal. Evolution required it. Civilization required it. We’ve been able to rise above some of our urges; scientific advances certainly prove that. But once you give power to greedy men, they can undo all of progress we’ve made. It’s a pity that so many suffer so that a few can sit in piles of money. I only have a pile of leaves to sit in, which I’ve just done. I am leaf-rich!

  4. Great questions..wish I had the answers. Sigh

  5. Important questions. Seems the older I get the fewer answers I have. 😦
    I had a conversation with a woman I’d never met before…and we agreed that our world seems to be taking steps backwards instead of forwards. 😦
    (((HUGS))) and ❤

  6. I think every politician / dictator / despot should read this. I think some of them believe it’s a sign of strength.

  7. This is a poam to claim on ythe numetrous miltary cemeteries in Europe and elsewhere . Why the war ? Never the war!
    LOve ❤
