Oh Peace, Where Do I Find You..... Poem by Ravi Sathasivam

Oh Peace, Where Do I Find You.....

Rating: 5.0


Oh peace, where do I find you
I search you everywhere in my country but I could not find you
Oh peace, our countrymen love to have you in their hearts
but now your presence is not there to have a peaceful life.
Oh peace where do you go and where can I find you
I see our mothers tears in my country more than rain has poured
I see our nation's charming beauty is lost and its taken away from many acts of hate
I see our people wandering like broken arms to recover their lost freedoms
I see our people beautiful brotherly smiles lost where anger knows no boundaries
I see our people often plant a seed of peace to grow smoothly
but often its burn like a wild fire to the ash by our leaders
We are yet to free from political terrorism and thugs in our own country
and they have trapped us behind shelter of broken promises and blatant lies
Always, life seems to be enjoyed with another man's hearts pain
Oh peace, what have we done to you for you to keep us away within reach
If our country is peaceful, it will blossom like a flower
There is nothing more precious than peace in this world
But peace without justice will not make any nation peaceful
because injustice is the enemy of peace
So, let us find peace where ever it is there within our reach in our minds and hearts

A VERY HEART FELT PLEAD TO PEACE...ONE OF MAN'S MOST STUPID INVENTION IS THIS NATION[I FEEL] WHERE ONE CLAIMS TO BE THE SON OF THE SOIL AND THE OTHER IS TREATED AS AN OUT CASTE...VIOLENCE FAILED AND IT WILL CONTINUE TO FAIL...POLITICAL JUSTICE WITH THE KIND OF LEADERS WE HAVE TODAY IS DIFFICULT...THE COMMON PEOPLE SHOULD UNITE PEACEFULLY TO ACHIEVE PEACE IRRESPECTIVE OF LANGUAGE

So accurately portrayed the pain you feel in absence of peace and so beautifully said; there can be no peace with out justice. I believe that is true in peoples personal lives as well as political........ Thank you Ravi........
