How To Acquire Peace

Rating: 5.0

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.

A poem rich in steeped wisdom, I especially enjoyed the last stanza, '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.' Meditation can so often be a temporary refuge from adversity, a source of peace, the foundation blessing of people with peace bestowing beautiful minds.

Great wisdom you shared here my friend, thank you for a perfect lesson, why, indeed, we don't need to look for peace in things, nor people, we had it all the way with us, we just have to live truthful, and be kind to self and everybody also everything else. Thank you! !

Insightful commentary, wealth can provide material security, but not spiritual or happiness prosperity. You summarize it well, in this moving poem. Well Done!
