War No More

Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

A poem-plea dedicated to Johan Galtung.

Let´s save all Humankind from the scourge of war
To nuclear weapons let`s effectively say: No More!
Trust and Dignity let`s always have at our door
Let´s make nonviolence a permanent, humanizing core.
