Peace

That rarest of rare , divine virtue !

Have you ever experienced it ?

That soothing , calming ,wonderful feeling ,

That all is well with you and the world !

Where to find it ?

In my home or your home ?

In my land or your land ?

In my heart or your heart ?

No politician will ever find it ,

Their overwhelming ambitions and insatiable greed ,

Never lead to the path of peace .

Speeches ,placards , slogans false,

Forgotten as they come down the stage.

They let the homing pigeons suffocate 

in the sack .

Then release them to go back to their master’s pack .

No fake Sages will go near it ,luring  crowd in the name of God .

They are here  to brainwash you ,intimidate you

With their powerful religious rod .

Only a man  with the power to forget ,

All those misdeeds done to him ,

A man who has courage to forgive  those ,

Who have done him a grievious wrong ,

Is the only  one to sing a  lovely peaceful  song
