volume

21 Mar

the sword of conflict
raises swifter
resounds louder
than the voice
of reason

    We can only hope that the voice of reason still echoes, long after the swords have been laid down.

    That’s so true!

    I love the lines “raises swifter/resounds louder.”

    This is so well written – and, sadly, true.

    So sad. So true.

    Oh, indeed it does. Excellent piece!

    Indeed, but I too hope that reason resounds longer in the echos of the heart of man.

    Too true…will we ever learn that lesson, I wonder? Very nice!

    So sadly true.

    Anna :o]

    Ah, that it does. Sadly.

    Well, I wanted to say “ain’t it the truth!” but someone already beat me to it.

  16. Vinay March 22, 2011 at 10:58 am #

    Sad,true, and well spoken. 🙂

    It is a blade quick to strike, and only lately tempered…it carves the voice before it can ever cry out. Simple delivery of message, yet all the more potent for it – short, to the point, and sharing a touch of wisdom we could all stand to heed.

    ha. unfortunately this is true…

  20. Vishwas Anand March 22, 2011 at 5:53 pm #

    Yes, it’s difficult to listen to reason during traumatic times.

  21. poemblaze March 22, 2011 at 5:56 pm #

    Concise, pithy, accurate! Well done.

  22. Shashi March 22, 2011 at 10:05 pm #

    So powerful and perfect… I liked it very much.

    Too bad we don’t think before we react. Great thoughts…
