Let me

SOMETHING I LOOK AT-74
BY-SMRUTI RANJAN MOHANTY

Let me listen to the voice within
my conscience
whispering every minute
to be at peace with me and people around
with birds and animals, meadows and mountains, trees and creepers
with everything and every being
i come across
let me internalise the values of the society
love, reciprocation, peace and brotherhood
to make the world
a better place to live in

Let me put an end to my struggle
with negativity in all its form
ego, hatred, jealousy
and explore the man in me
let me be a pigeon of peace moving
every nook and corner with my wings of love spreading the message
of peace and brotherhood
wherever and with whomever i am

A man at peace with himself knows
what peace means to him and others
which a man at constant war with himself
can hardly fathom

Nothing like peace and love
it conquers the whole world and
make you the man you are
cultivate it and spread its grandeur
if you want to save the world so dear

    This poem explores an eternal theme – the struggle of the human soul to find peace in a turbulent world . The solution cannot be smooth and easy – for peace once found can still be lost – and the found again . The journey is not linear but cyclical
