PEACE – Ria Tushar Ghelani

Beyond the fights and the screams unworthy,
Beyond the cries and the shouts for mercy,
In a world away from hurt and pain,
Laughs and smiles are all that rains.

Underneath those smiles, it’s the hurt that hides,
Every day we witness a new one die,
Is this what we truly deserve?
Or should our lives be taking a turn?

A world that understands humanity,
And hearts that consider the plea of pity,
Is the only hope I hold on to,
Come on, Peace, let me hand you your cue.

A vision that encircles all our minds,
People of every race and kind,
Will one day hail the bringing of peace,
And set my bleeding heart at ease.
