Let peace prevail in our country soon

Let peace prevail in our country soon........ When we lost hope for the freedom and peace there is much more tears shed in our country When all those innocent people lost faith in their leaders there is no hope for the bright future in our country When all those priests become politically motivated culprits then the people lost faith in our worship places. When all those handful of leaders make ocean of wealth by squeezing their poor masses blood When all those saints sit under the temple trees and meditate fake for sins for the peace how could the light of Asia "Lord Buddha's " teaching of dharma will help us to find peace in our country Freedom doesn't mean that we can do anything that we want but do right thing at right time to build up a peaceful nation How many steps we walk closer towards peace and freedom but till it will remain an endless journey to find it Let no more war and violence prevail in our country Oh God, let peace and freedom prevail in our country soon.

Ravi, your words brought tears to me. I can't imagine what it is like to live in a country where the wealthy make money at the expense of the poor. Nor can I imagine priests siding politically with bad leaders. You have confirmed the sadness I feel for people in some parts of the world. I will favorite this poem as I think I will want to read it over and over as a reminder. Thank you for sharing it. Powerful writing at its best! Carolyn

We need to start doing what is right and not what makes us richer or more powerful.

If politicians do not become just or the just people don't become politicians these phenomena will last! Great writing my friend, Ravi! I am with you!
