IF DEMOCRACY IS...

If democracy is the outcome of violence,

she will soon change into fascism or communism

and then will corrupt as fear and force never lasts long.

If democracy is established by love and peace,

she will never change her appearance

and will last long with the sun and moon.

Fear and force act quickly but die quickly too,

whereas love and peace act slowly but are immortal.

Non-violence is the only weapon to save democracy,

non-violence is the only weapon to save this beautiful world.

Your poem about democracy says much. Let us pray that more people embrace non-violence and share more love and peace amongst one another.

How right you are! What a shame not everyone sees it that way. The greed for money and power gets in the way, along with self-importance. All we need is love, which encompasses tolerance and understanding.

Well said.

Non violence is the only weapon to save this world.
