ONE WORLD, ONE VOICE
Not just a speck of dust in a swirling, gathering mass
The earth is where life abounds
God has created to be enjoyed by mankind.
You and me although not binded by the same blood,
Black or white, yellow or brown
One world, one voice
To stand up and be at peace together is our only choice.
Who likes terrorism and all those selfish schemes?
No one deserves to die innocently
Out of brutal killings and vicious plots done mercilessly
One world, one voice,
Stop these envious mockeries
And help one another than be divided incessantly.
All those lives lost in horrifying terrorist attacks,
Their souls will forever be remembered
The reasons behind the evil acts forever be pondered.
Lay to eternal rest our brethren
Who have suffered sudden, tragic deaths,
We pray none of those similar occurrence
Befall again anywhere.



PEACE STARTS WITHIN ME
Almost all people want to change the world
But no one wants to change himself,
Leo Tolstoy once said
Out of the bruises and scars of society,
The permanent marks of crime and fatality
We always ask ourselves what’s going on with humanity,
But have we ever pondered on and uttered “peace should start within me”?

Living in a world of chaos
Is not what the Almighty wants His beloved children to be in,
But to live in pure harmony, not shedding blood and tears
Caring for each other, no prosecution of our own brothers,
Delude envy with genuine love and erase each other’s fears
Peace starts within me, I need to purify my soul first,
Before healing the ill world around me.

Hear the cry of even the unborn children
Of generations to come in bewilderment,
Prepare a world enveloped with love and contentment
Be good examples through good deeds and sincere words,
Say no to wars that leave no winners but just ugly scars
Stop selfish motives and be our brother’s keepers,
Wake up to a renewed world clothed in PEACE, LOVE and LIGHT!


LET PEACE REIGN
The world nowadays needs everlasting peace
As wars everywhere continue to plague mankind,
The greed for power and might
And religious differences abound
Destroying properties, killing innocent lives,
What must we do to heal this ailing world
But to purify ourselves first
Obtain inner peace among ourselves,
To let peace reign in our hearts
And to bring light to our bewildered souls.
