Death and a question

As we kill one another like flies
And the air's rent asunder with cries
"How can you bear the weight
Of such long-lasting hate?"
I ask God, looking Him in the eyes...

For Iraq, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Bombay, Kashmir and all the other places in the world that need healing...but I am also left wondering... does anyone at all have the soothing balm anymore?

    Whether it is Bin Laden or Saddam,
    It's they who need the balm (AND NOT BOMB)
    So that they eschew the path of violence
    And embrace peace and tolerance
    And let the world be orderly and calm.
