WHY CAN’T WE LIVE IN PEACE?

Terrorism and violence rules our daily life. There isn’t a moment of peace. Every day, the newspapers, the news channels carry incidents of murders, wars, bomb-blasts etc.

I don’t know, when we will learn to act as ONE human community? When will we leave our differences aside and strive for global peace? When will religion not be a barrier but a connecting force?

I hope, some day, we make this world a better place to live in…….)

Why can’t we live in peace,

Why do we have to fight?

Don’t we understand we lose always-

Even if we are right!

Why some silly unknown reasons,

Wars and disputes do make?

Why only innocent lives,

are always put at stake?

What do we get by betting-

against our own soul?

On this life’s stage-

Do we play the right role?

Does our happiness multiply-

By snatching other lives?

Each sin we commit hurts us later-

like sharp and pointed knives!

Fighting over Gods and religion-

does that make us divine?

Even for a moment of happiness-

for long years we pine!

Why can’t we live in peace,

Why do we have to fight?

Don’t we understand we lose always-

Even if we are right!
