Rifle and Violin


Song Against War
By : Ali Taha Alnobani
© 2011 by Ali Taha Alnobani



Helicopters were over us
Noise and fuss
Yesterday with orchestra
And today in battle
My life seems like a shuttle
The violin that was touching my neck
Became today a rifle
The tune of dancing and love
Just now became blood and pus
Noise and fuss
And now behind a tree
Trying to press on the trigger
Feeling my daughter Julie
Calling me
Don't shoot
Don't shoot
Oh my God
Is this a rifle
Or a violin!!

  20. Nothing we can do just to pray. Prayer can move mountsin, even you have faith as small as a mustard seed you can tell to the mountain to move into the ocean. Nothing that God can not do. We as human can't stop the war we need God intervention.....

  57. ♥ You are the group of People Most Beautiful Universe ♥
    ♥ ♥ ♥ Beautiful People often smile even when they wanted mourn. And even when your faith is tested show hope because they know that faith overcomes the senses are those who try to walk the extra mile and never refuse ... to provide the best of them ... The beautiful people, working for your dreams materialize. They do not sit and wait for life because they were surprised to life with surprising strength and momentum. They grow in spite of knowing that are often not the ones who pick the fruit. But they do it with joy because they think the future of not only themselves but also of others. They serve as bridges, are the tie that binds. Put peace, spread love and avoid conflicts. Not seek their own welfare, share and teach by example. The beautiful people beautify the environment where they are. Because the environment does not make them, they make the environment. Recognize that God is the author of life and the source of love and joy. So I think you belong to a group of beautiful people. Because despite the spine, still watching and seeing the beauty of the rose. Because you do not concentrate on the stone that obstructs the way, but always towards the target. For sharing your heart with me and make me feel more tangible and visible love of God. For all these reasons and more, are the group of the most beautiful of the universe. ♥ ♥ ♥

  64. Nice what writes and that so painful reality, because each of the soldiers in the war that is, bring his different thought, I do not deny that anyone will have a good time on having shot a weapon, but more they go only for obligation or promises of remuneration.
    We all have a heart that suffers and if we think that the wars finish, this way it will be. Let's join our spiritual force in order that already there is no any more suffering. God blesses it

  73. A very strange poem, but it reflects exactly what is wrong with most men in this world and some women too. The urge to FIX THINGS with a gun or fighting or shooting or a sword... How sad that mankind have not moved forward at all and the only noise you do hear is the noises of angry people, not willing to live in peace with their neighbors. I am different. I like peace, love, truth and the only noises of birds chirping in the trees all around me all day long! And the laughter of happy children and people enjoying one another in Love, AHabiYA. May YAHUWAH show His Love to you and all the men in this world, who serve The Destroyer, who taught them how to make war, instead of Peace. Blessings, Electro~Warrior, Cape Town, S.A.
