The World Called 'There' - Poem by Elia Usmani

I went to a place,
there was no pain and sorrow.
The world was full of happiness,
unknown was the difference between.
'to share' and 'to borrow'.

Crucifying and killing,
were just some words there.
Because in that peaceful world,
everyone lived free from fear.

Cruelty of lust and greed,
was nowhere to be seen.
Sadness and sickness, were meaningless words.
Forget about having a bad dream.

Care was the word known there,
and love was to be seen everywhere.
Angels always prayed,
for the betterment of cruel being.

When i asked 'Who are they? '
They said 'You, The human beings.'

Thats when i opened my eyes,
and realised it wasn't real.
Because the world called 'There'
exist only in dreams.
