The poem talks about urgent need for peace on earth
Give Peace A Chance

Oh, Man!
Let human beings be
At peace,
Know’st not thou
That this world
Neither is thine
Nor mine,

We abide here
At His pleasure,
When the call cometh,
We leave this place,
Which neither you
Nor I own,

Our time is brief,
Neither can we prolong
Nor shorten
Our stay,

Why then quarrel,
Fight and shed blood
Egged on by our ego
And thoughts of
Assumed supremacy,

Nothing ever will remain
To remind the world
When we are gone,

When dust to dust
And the headstone
Melts with time,
What is there
To tell the world
About the flesh
And the skin
That once strode
With unwanted

Pease thou never
Nor did you allow
Others to enjoy,
With all that
Notions of supremacy
And the arrogated

It’s not late
To mend
Thy unscrupulous ways,

Realize the truth
That all beings born
Are equal
In the eyes of the Lord,
So it should be
With mortals too,

Thou are not
The God on earth,
But a transient being
With thy time
On this earth
Well determined already,

Make peace with
Those around you,
Make this earth
A place worth living,

If thou would’st let peace
Fill thy heart and soul,
And let everyone
Live their lives
In peace without fear,
Thy name will live
Long after thou art gone.

Give peace a chance
That humanity may j=rejoice
In the divinely gift-
That is what peace is.
