"The important thing is not to stop questioning." ~Einstein


In my dreams, I hear the echoes of bliss;
Can see the arrival of the dove of peace.
I've got the peace song inside my heart.
Let me play my requisite part!

Peace is not just the absence of war.
It's all we have always hungered for.
It ensures the security of our beloveds,
And their dearly beloveds, even unloved.

We need to learn how to forgive,
To lead a life worth to live.
Peace is a citizen's ideal dream.
Strive hard to establish it true and gleam!

Why on earth have we lost the grace,
To respect each other, regardless of race?
“Peace begets peace: brother for brother”,
Hear the voice of the earth mother!

Hey friend! Why not you and I both,
Join our hands to make an oath,
“Peace for our friends, peace for our foes,
To bring an end to the prevailing woes.”

I was hooked from the beginning. This is so beautiful, and so so true! Here's a kind of world I hope for, beautiful job! :)

Hamza, I love the message in which you convey. That peace is a necessity, and i also like how you stretch the importance of peace. You wrote this poem with such a melodic flow that is gleamed blissfully. Alluring the eyes of readers in all aspects, and although some lines were a little imbalanced, it didn't truly matter because you wrote with such a beautiful flow. This by far is one of my favorite poems. Outstanding and very inspirational piece!!

This is lovely! What a trueld admirable dream! I too, wish for a world where everyone was at peace with one another, though I doube human nature would permit it. Ah well, it's a beautiful thought. And I suppose you never know, that delicate crystal dream might be tougher than it looks.

I loved this!! Wow.....all technical details aside, which were nearly perfect, I loved the message and how u skillfully inserted quotes....they were quotes, right? The only thing I'd change is the wording for "to lead a life worth to live." Did u mean "worthy"? Anyways, great job!!! XD

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

I sure will.... And you're welcome! ANd thank you... it means a lot.

WOW....This sure is your best outta the ones I read! I love the theme. SO strong and all words just fit...This one flowed beautifully... Even though some lines were gramatically imbalanced but that didn't matter much as t was all connecting so well. "Why on earth have we lost the garce, To respect eachother, regardless of race?" were my favourite lines.... I remember writing something with a similar theme but different perspective...I've shared it as "Pure Soul" ....Maybe you could give some of my stuff a read,...You're a good poet, I'd like to see what you think of my work :)))

I love the message this conveys. Yes, more than anything now, we need peace! I really loved the 4th stanza that talks about race. It's very true! N the last two lines were excellent :)
