Entreaty


The extremists envisage for the purity
the purity is left behind
outpace the extremism
humanity commit suicide

Peace breaks into crumbs
the rampant advises for peace
the peace scambles in the race course
like a sick horse wheezing for peace

How the peace is to restore
when the earth has become a race course

Peace is searching for peace
lost in the bewildered world
or peace has fleed away
for fear of bewildered world

Let us pray the mighty world
to dwell in our lovely world

    Powerful write Sir..Where is peace, especially humanity committed suicide and earth has become a race course.
    But still as you said, Let us pray the Almighty God to dwell in our world to make it lovely and peaceful.
    Great message, especially what is going on today....Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
