an uneasy world

war is at the doorstep

what do you expect me to do?

don't lose hope to obstacles

and rise above the chaos

praise unforgotten calm

  1. Far away as you are, but people are dying in the streets of Ukraine!
    This afternoon a ship flying the flag of Moldovia was shot upon and crew members were wounded . . .!
    The state of Moldovia is. by the way. a NATO member nation! NATO, however. claims that they will
    defend every inch of NATO territory !? Exceptt shipping then . . .?

  3. Well penned Eugenia.

    Provocative verse. But true. What are we to do? We are the people and yet are we listened to … really? What are we to do.

  4. A foreseeable world war is looming indeed. Putin and his cronies have decided to put their power on the pedestals and try the patience of the whole world. 😌 Quite unfortunate indeed!

    We need to redirect positive force to end all wars.

  6. Excellent poem Eugi!
    I want to talk to Putin…try to explain that he is doing the worst thign possible…I am one person. He would laugh in my face; in all our faces!
    He does NOT want Ukraine to join the EU…that is why he is waging war…..
    How does the world deal with a dictator???

    1. I feel the same- I want to talk to him too . I want to explain to him how useless all this is. My words will fall on deaf ears but I still want to try.

  7. I have a friend who relocated to Ukraine last year, she hasn’t responded to chars today, as it hasn’t been delivered up until now. I only hope she and others are safe.

    Everything happening in Ukraine right now is so disturbing and quite sad.
