A Rhymed Reflection Never Before Proclaimed


Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

All types of nuclear weapons let us abhor.
The mention of any types of nuclear war let us deplore.

Any threat of nuclear attack let´s not ignore;
To arsenals of nuclear arms let´s never open the door.

New ways of educating Humankind for global sustainable Peace let`s explore.
Let`s integrate Peace + Nonviolence + Nonkilling as Humankind`s ever-dignifying core.

May the banning of all types of nuclear weapons forever place LIFE ON EARTH to the fore.
May this humble rhymed reflection be added to the inspiring statements made before.
