Continent Of Peace

At one point or the other

We fight a million wars

With ourselves

And with the outer world

For gains and for conquests,

Believing it as eternal

Or we fight over

A sharp edged splinter

To bleed to end

In Mid-summer rays

To burn the whole feelings

To sand dust to end in earth

To meditate in winter’s crystal ice

To felicitate our own innermost being..

There hides a continent of peace inside us

With doors as vast as our human race

Locked for a reason or often covered

In layers of illusion like that of clouds

In the sky repeatedly cast a shadow

On light that of a lustrous universe

Where tirelessly we seek for peace

Forgetting the peace within

Is a continent uncovered for.

It is difficult to find

The cause of a heartless destiny

While the washed out sorrows

Take a different unusual path

To empty in oceans

Where mermaids hide dreams

Of a million centuries

In nuggets of pearl..

In chaos and in endless

Clusters of outer voices

Deep within hides a continent

A continent of peace

Adorned with silence And treasurable gems of hope

May be, one day

At the end of all non-forgiving

Seasons and carnivals

Hopefully there arises a continent

In all novelty

For humanity to cherish..
