Find Me This Country

peace

Where people are not on a killing spree
Where no violence could erupt,
Bomb explode
Or a four-wheeled might just run amok.

Where nobody thirsts for a mayhem
And for no reason but insanity
Spray bullets on anybody.

Where there are no drug addicts
No extremists,
Who, when under the influence of drugs
Or their beliefs,
Rape, steal,
and have the innocent maimed… killed.

Where the military, police and the leaders
Are not the devil’s apprentices,
Whose power they use
To abuse and oppress!

Is there any country
Where people embrace diversity,
Where no people claim racial superiority,
Where nobody wears mask?
No pretense.
No hypocrisy.

Is there any country
Where there’s no poverty?
No war.
No calamity.

One whose inhabitants
Could rest assured,
And say
We’re safe and secured.

Is there any country
Where we could go
When that dreaded mushroom grow?

Where in the world is that country?
Tell me where.
Take me there.

About HARDPEN

Teacher-Writer Hardpen is my nom de plume. My real name is Massuline Antonio Dupaya Ligaya. Many times I was asked the question, "Why do you write?" I don't write for rewards nor adulation. When I write poems, stories or essays, seeing them completed gives me immense joy and satisfaction. The happiness and sense of fulfillment I feel when completing my works are my rewards. When I teach, I don't work but I play. The classroom is my playground, the students are my playmates, and the subject is our toy. Proud to be me! Proud to be a FILIPINO! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

  1. The most peaceful place I know is above earth where we go after we finished our mission in this chaos world.😊
