Song of Peace


I have travelled round the world
Not so many cities I have been
Yet feel I little of things unseen

For I am brimfull of the friendliness
This kind of world it is I seek
On the shore I stand alone and think

A world of laughter, a world of peace
A world where no killings will remain
No Al-Qaeda and No Boko haram again

A world of freedom, a world of hope
A world where guilt no one shall feel
To thy lord only thy shall kneel

No single fear of the mighty tomorrow
With smile thy 'll embrace your home
And no one will bear thy pains alone...

    A song of peace is a song of beauty
    Slant rhymes are used, I don't think it's fruity...
    Very well written, Keep it up! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
