PEACE (a poem by Joseph Bravo)

In the #PulseStudentPoetry Prize an 8-line poem could win you a Lenovo ThinkPad...

Where has peace gone?

Deserted houses with looks forlorn

Tearful eyes in blue funk

Beautiful smiles replaced by dolorous expressions

Where has peace gone?

Streets littered with gory corpses

Naked; for the cloak of peace has been torn from their bodies

Peace has journeyed into oblivion

.....................................................
