The world is terribly shaking!
Everywhere… eager to kill!
And destroy...collateral damage!
Innocents shocked and weeps!
Abundance in killing machines?

Unconsciencious even to
Young and old!
Rejoicing to more spirits lost
Doesn't matter to growth and progress
Devil's gallantry?
Is this your way of finances?

Why not leaders converge
And talk and discuss,
The roots of these violences!
Why sit down and sip coffee
And embrace one another?

Is there no other recourse?
Except the ongoing harshes?
Why not renew our thoughts?
Could we just stop
Throw our guns
And hug everyone we meet? .

"To which generation will your hellish hatred extend?
When will the heart-broken tears and the orphans' cries end?
So many beautiful lives, families and fields have been destroyed!
Why are you killing one and another, can't you be friends?
. . .
Then around this reviving olive tree every day,
Your children in their own costumes will join hands to play.
In their own languages and ways, to God they will pray.
They will enjoy the fruit of peace you plant and perpetuate today!"
