In A Wonderland - Poem by Akhtar Jawad

Don't know how in a wonderland,
It looks like earth, its landscape
Amazing color and attractive shape,
All round I see a grassy green land,
It's full of fragrant colorful flowers,
Fountains and falls for soothing showers!

Colorful flowers no chimneys of mills,
Jogging rivers that aren't steep,
Walk other bank it isn't too deep,
I see a palace in the valley of hills,
No signs yet of beasts or humans.
Animals, that are purely vegetarians!

I now started climbing on the hill,
No boundary wall no lock no gate,
I heard a voice, 'Go back, you're late.'
Go back to your world of heat and chill,
This land is meant for children and infants,
Neither for sages and nor for the saints!

Who died innocent before youth age,
Lucky enough not to kill anyone,
No sin with them to be undone,
Who never lived in a violence-cage,
Not for sinful women and men,
It's reserved for non-violent children!
