The Spirit Of Hiroshima and Nagasaki

let not the spirit fade
in the face of death and destruction
the spirit rises
for my brothers and sisters
the spirit survives

The time of 8:15 a.m., August 6th, 1945 is an eternally memorable moment for the world as well as for Hiroshima.)

What men may come

What day may dawn
what sun may rise
what life may come
what face may shine
what life may find
what love may bond
what child may born
what dream may come

what year may come
what life may want
what soul may find
what people may sin
what bomb may drop
what life may die
what men may come
what men may kill

One of the few things the world so far had said "never again" to and meant it.

I suspect, from what I've read of WWII, that it should also have been: never to begin with...

A beautiful city becomes ash in a second, many sweet dreams and wishes have destroyed. what a cruel bro it this!! I pray that another incident like this should not happen in our future.

Informative links and nice poem.

Great job. We need to be reminded.
Landing on the moon, the mushroom cloud, and the bhuddist monk on fire protesting the war in Viet Nam are a few images that will never leave my mind. Our world is filled with powerful images. It is a shame that so many of them are so destructive.
60 years and what have we learned???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

[h-e] yes, we forget much in this world was caused by the ideologies of a few people and religion. And everyday something else happens...the Zionis bastards killing innocent lives in Lebanon n palestine...we have learned nothing!

[jeevan] it should never happen! if it ever does again, then its the end of us humans.

[darius] its true...history is different from what actually happened, the Japanese were only freeing the Asian people from colonial clutches...and the bomb was dropped on a human population!

[velu sarr] thanx! I hope we learn someday...

[grey] thanx bro...

[dumbodi] express u opinions or be silenced forever hahahahahaha

[Keshi] thanx so much luv...we need not forget the past, just yet...

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
