(Dedicated to all who suffer for peace missions – Deepak Sarkar, www.kolki.com )
One who loves peace,
Works extra time for peace,
Tries to convince others the goodness in peace
Not yet desensitized with personal needs
Feels sufferings inflicted on innocent beings
By an invading army, militia, mercenary or arsonist
Often gets labelled as peace activist!
Authorities almost always treat them as terrorists!
Anti-social elements in media at best or cops list!
Ignoring threats on self, family and friends
Rising above humiliation during discussions and debates!
Challenging notions implanted by society’s creed and greed
Seeing beyond parents religious belief
Works alone or join team providing relief
Bringing solace refuge to those in need!
Effortlessly seeking truth and justice!
Busy worrying, helping, writing or protesting
Often forgets powerful eyes have been watching
Conspiring remote controlled suicide bombing
Carefully spying on every move and night staying
Writing suicide notes before slaying
At home, in a hotel room; while walking or jogging!
Emergency crew will cover the lifeless body
Few will remember as a great soul and buddy
Others will believe in rumour, news and stories!

[World citizens, including Academics & Scholars, must not be naïve anymore! Illegal Invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq by US/Allied Forces were nothing less than real Terror and War Crimes. Unpunished for their heinous crime in 21st Century, the US military and Administration along with Israel are planning to repeat the crimes openly declaring their intention to strike against peaceful Iran as their option to Recolonize the entire world as “New World”, destroying ancient people, their vibrant creative cultures, and civilizations as collateral damages. It is time to remind world leaders that the world citizens know who have the most weapons of mass destruction and who use them conveniently violating international laws and using un-democratic United Nations. We must never compromise rule-of-law and proof-of-conviction for the sake of true democracy and lasting peace. Kolki]
Love is the ultimate security which does not require expensive idle mischievous covert intelligence, violent military, destructive Defense industries, and divisive ideologies! Kolki
[Terrorism can never be fully addressed without eliminating brutal military terrorism! Kolki]
Do we need a UN Security Council and an International Court which cannot Punish War Criminals in Bush, Blair and Howard Administrations for illegally attacking and destroying sovereign peaceful Iraq, killing and displacing millions? Kolki
