Will War Cease?

by Gowri Bhargav


Dropped bombs blast,
The city crumbles fast,
With mangled bodies the air hums haunting dirges.

A wounded mother sits still as her pain surges,
Alas! Her breaths struggleโ€“with death her life merges,
Her suckling child smiling, seems at peace.

Though the child gets life’s lease,
Will wars cease?
