How To Acquire Peace - Poem by Kumarmani Mahakul

On changeable Earth human beings are wise,
They want to perpetuate the progress in rise.
Some vie in earning wealth to live happily,
Attractive edifices they build to reside properly.

To lead a prosperous life some are on keen,
To live peacefully they try hard and do gin.
Some are on moonshine and they visualize peace,
They visualize peace by wealth, pedantry and dish.

Do persons indeed get peace from wealth?
Or do they avail eternal happiness or mental health?
Peace can't be obtained where there is vexation,
Nor it can be acquired in fuss and transgression.

Perplexity and agitation don't bring peace,
Wealth can bring transient happiness and bliss.
Eternal peace we can acquire through noble work,
Truthfulness, nonviolence can remove anxiety-murk.

We can acquire eternal peace through meditation,
Value in life can save persons from damnation.
Love, purity, charity, truthfulness, believe in God,
These help a person to acquire eternal peace-bud.

    Peace is not as easy to reach as it seems. quite often, in fact I have not felt peace, but then I meditate in silence and usually peace will return. The question about wealth bringing happiness or not is an engaging one. Extreme poverty and constant money worries are not good either. Debts and bankruptcy soon bring real stress and worry. I like your touch of 'dish' which I take to be a satellite TV dish, or fine food. This poem makes me think and reflect. (Report)Reply
