I went up and down in quest of peace
Indeed! I found one: an illusion
I proceeded in my hurt for peace
Obviously my bullet hit one
A wealth of joy filled my being
But was a wolf in sheep clothing
Down cast for shooting a wrong target

Enraged, furious, frustrated!
Aware of my illusion, I press further 
With empire of enthusiasm I move
More conscious of what comes
But non resemble PEACE 
I advanced the search
Patience and courage were wearing
Perturbed the propeller broken 
I realized it dwell not on earth
Weary becomes my patience and courage
The gut to advance faded 
Now camped  and fed by perturbation 
Agitation became the air I breathe 
It dawn on me that PEACE, has no abode

Hold and embraced by illusion
I stumbled across an ancient treasure 
Flipping the pages, was arrested
Behold, what I have been looking for
Reside in this scroll, PEACE
No wonder, no wonder
They call it the word of PEACE
