Something that binds us. a poem by Dr Ashok Kumar

Ashok Kumar Verna

Something that binds us

Near or far, on the earth or in the space 
Known or unknown feelings of courage 
Remove negative people from valuable life 
Toxic they are, bring stress and strife 
Sweet soft soul chosen each other for one goal
Something binds us to play our role 
Believe it or not Peace makers we're born for mission and a reason 
Here's true pleasure and nice surprise 
In desperate wonderful world sun always rise 
Peace Activists we're building our inner world of spiritual powers 
Do good karmas with love, the need of these crucial hours 
Let's learn from life management 
Enjoy every energetic moment
Feel pain of all souls through light of the lamps in the society 
Here's Peace, prosperity, and true beauty.
