I don’t comprehend those who actively choose to disrupt peace, kill calm or destroy lives. There is no task more purposeless than that of hurting others; we hurt others enough without trying. I wrote this haiku after struggling to rationalise the irrational events of a recent act of terror.
Peace, five letters roar,
We seek no hate nor fuel war,
We love, only so.
