Sadiqullah Khan


Peace


I want peace
Peace in my personal space
At least
Then spreading like perfume
All encompassing
Peace in my head
In my heart
In my demeanor
In my talk
In my eyes
On my tongue
In my hands
My feet
Refuse
To take me
Anywhere
Where there is no peace
My hands refuse to carry
That gun
I want peace in my feelings
I like the great word
Speak of peace
All prevailing
In nature
And like butterflies
Like bees
For the nectar sweet
Like in a garden
And then spread it
All over me and you
Like honey
In my songs
In my lyrics
And at the time
Of my return
Cloth me in white
The color of peace

    I really appreciate the way the world is a great whole for you, the natural world is the mirror of man's inside world, peace from inside responds to peace from outside; the will wishes to transform the outside world so as to find an inside serenity and vice versa. Beautiful! (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,

God leaves alone.
