STRING OF LOVE

Desperate cries of impotent people,
Red drops are shed during this upheaval,
Peace and bliss are blown apart,
Doesn’t it agonize the heart?

Dark clouds of hatred are overhead,
Streets are coloured with red,
Every moment, every hour, every day,
Innocent lives are stolen away.

People cry, people die,
With every moment that passes by,
Each and everyone merely prays,
For this earth to become a better place.

This terror is dominating the world,
Flags of hatred are being unfurled,
We beg for blessings from above,
We forget, we’ve got something called ‘love’.

Terror is mighty, all right,
But love has got even more might,
A string of love binds us together,
The sting breaks, and we see terror.

Love is an eternal feeling, 
It is something beyond fancy,
It can destroy any Satan, 
However mighty it may be!

        Just need a favour .I’m new here so I’m little confused about Reblogging.Would you please tell me about it?

      2. Yes sure. Type the Web address of the blog on Google. The Web address is clearly displayed at the top when you read posts from WordPress.com reader. When you type the Web address Google will take you to that blog. Once you enter the blog click on anyone of any one of the posts you want to read. Right at the bottom, along with the like button, there’s a reblog option available. Click on it. Another dialog box kinda thing will appear when you click. there you’ll have to write some thoughts about the post you are reblogging. Once you’re done with it, click on ‘reblog post’. And that’s it. I’m pretty much bad at explaining things. If you don’t understand anything, do ask me again…
