Someone Threw Down Their Weapon Today – A Poem by Kelly Flack

“The pioneers of a warless world are the youth that refuse military service.”
Albert Einstein

Someone threw down their weapon today.
They said “no more”, and walked away.
A tear was shed and a smile was had
as the person said quietly, “no more bad”
This happened eight thousand miles away
As I sat in my home on this warm Summers day
And I sent out an energy, born of pure love
From Australia to Israel, through heavens above.
Someone threw down their weapon today
As vibrational energies flowed their way
And they opened their eyes and they felt with their heart
And decided today, they would make a new start
And this person, though eight thousand miles away,
Touched another with beautiful words he did say:
“A thought I just had said theres no need to fight
I’ve been told I must shoot and it doesn’t feel right
So I’m walking away from this blood and this fear
And I hope you will join me right now, right here”

  And he held out his hand for the person to take

They gazed at each other as around them did shake
And the second man saw in his good friends eyes
That the killings bred only more hate and more lies
So another gun fell as the two men held hands
And they smiled and nodded, their actions felt grand
Then ANOTHER man saw them, the message was shared
From one man to another, all life must be spared
Regardless of where you might live on this Earth
A vibration of Love helps us realise our worth
We are brothers and sisters that may be worlds apart
May we step into Love and ALL live from the Heart
Do what “feels” good, live a passionate life
Put your focus on joy, not on worry or strife
From the hearts in the Earth, from my Soul and above
From Australia, I send you, Dear Reader – Much Love

  1. I am a poet at heart as Kelly Flack is and we write what’s in our heart of hearts. Quoting Einstein is appropriate as well because the greatest minds in science “see” the permutations of their discoveries, not just in their one discipline but many others, knowing it is all related. It is in the style of Theodore Giesel(aka Dr. Seuss) which is meant as a compliment because it gives the thought more power than something more esoteric. It reflects all the yearning of something more productive and positive in our collective lives that we know is in each one of us. The questions are: How many limiting beliefs are covering that Love? How willing am I to rid myself of them? How afraid am I to find what’s on the other side of eliminating those destructive beliefs? I am an idealist, an optimist, and always will be and I find the sentiment of laying down arms and just stopping the violence a beautiful thing. It is just this idealism and optimism that stands as a signpost to what can be if we’re willing to see what can be. Thanks for the lovely poem, Kelly, and thanks, Rashelle, for sharing!


    1. Such an amazingly beautiful comment, I hope everyone that reads this post takes the time to read it and contemplate your words as much as Kelly’s. Words from divine hearts are poetry to ears and stir slleping souls to awaken. I am so delighted to be sharing this journey with both of you and I am really looking forward to seeing the fruits of your writing, Big hugs, Rashelle
