I've A Worldly Sincere Question Of Which I Speak

By D.K.Milgrim-Heath©2010

I've a worldly question of which I speak-

Is world promoted violence the answer to world peace we seek?

Shaeeb- Really worldly speaking I've a Question-

By way of all Jihads how is your religion define itself by what direction?

Radom killings of people by suicide bombers everywhere-

Does not that promote a religion of pure hatred fully there?

I've lifelong friends that are Moslems the same religion such as you-

They're peaceful people appalled what violence as turned their religion into.

They don't go to their public Mosques any more-

Because of the fear that some bad eruption there could score.

If that's the way people can feel about their religion to me it's quite sad-

That world violence makes some people filled with joy to be glad.

Any house of worship should be with love not hatred filled with propaganda-

That causes their followers to live their lives treating others with blasphemous slander.

We aren't bound to like everyone that we meet that includes me-

But I don't go around killing others with such venom or deep passionate glee.

All Moslems have fought each other for years along-

It's in the world news always daily so very strong.

So you can't in your heart say you're religion's totally being one of peace-

As others do think towards promoting violence to increase.

By violent propaganda who in world violence who are the winners?

Each side suffers being innocent victims and the killers being the sinners.

Being a happy violent martyr is that the only way mentally the way to be?

When your brethren and strangers are dying each day unnecessarily.
