SILENCE THE VIOLENCE

a poem by Sheela Chalapathi ramananda, India



How to silence the violence in you and me?
Replace distrust with trust, and hatred with love.
Transform the ugly frown into a beautiful smile,
And direct the hand that rises to kill, to embrace.

How to silence the violence in you and me?
Find yourself in others and your happiness in others.
Share joys and grief and wipe a tear here and there
Convert the destructive anger into the constructive peace.

How to silence the violence in you and me?
Hatred begets hatred but love comes back multiplied
The bestial qualities can be channeled into humane assets
To make a heaven out of the hell.
