Why to talk
Why to talk of harmony and world peace?
Poverty, hunger and all comforts you miss
Distrust and apprehensions rule the day
I don’t find easy solutions or the way
We must win the heart of millions
To wipe out the poverty from regions
Detach self from the clutches of religions
Why we should not form the single opinion
What would we benefit by hoarding?
Ho many miseries we may be loading
No one may utter a word in this regard
Still you may not like to hear and disregard
By retaining surplus we are starving hungry
They may curse from within but not feel angry
If we can hear the call given by almighty?
There may be happiness, peace and amity
These words are not meaningless or hollow
One should feel it inwardly and follow
Conscience should bite and must allow
Pride, anger must be kept aside or to swallow
Can we build happy nation when people are hungry?
Rule the world with promises hollow and empty?
What do they ask in return for their survival?
Poverty elimination process for immediate revival
Rich nations can step in for their rescue
They need care and aid is over due
So many die for the want of food and medicine
Only open sky over head and no life line
We are merely watching their plight
Do not care or think of their rights
Have they not come with His blessings?
Have we any right left than confessing?
World at large can do so many things
Its fate is uncertain and largely hinges
If we part with little expenses and comforts?
Food and medicines can reach to needy ports
International gangs and mafias rule
Help does not reach destination in full
So many loose precious lives only for food
We must sincerely take them out of wood
We can build world order with mutual consent
Nothing comes in a way or anybody may resent
People may differ and speak with different ascent
Message of love and peace may be globally sent
World is divided over certain features
No solution is seen in near future
Many nations act irresponsible and in haste
World community at large suffers and detest
World is passing through critical stage
International affairs are difficult to manage
Diplomacy is having its tough time
Not enough could be done to curb the crimes
We should not lose hope for better tomorrow
World at large will come to terms and follow
It may deliver what is expected from them
We can take free air and breathe then
