Peace Lilies


The one and only one piece I longed
For a while, your hues of white
My peace lilies…
I wandered over earth and heaven
All in vein, hopeless me!

A glimpse of white, by the street
Made my heart pound a bit.
As a forlorn soul, scorched earth,
Blooms torn out, in a heap
Yet with a dreadful smile
None cared to heed
A peace lily resting in no peace!

I carried you in my arms
I hid you from earth and heaven
I pampered you, I fed you,
I buried my worries beneath your roots
You were shaken, you were awaken
By my love, by my pain
The day you showered your blossoms
I knew my war is over
I knew you sprinkled peace on me
I yearned to give out each piece of yours
Only to spread the white lilies of peace
All over the rumbling world

Alas! The apathetic realm!
None longed for peace
But for wars…
They laughed at me
They wielded hatred on me
Perplexed and wistful, I ran into you
You hid me underneath your roots
I was garbed in your greens
I survived… I lived!
I was at peace once again
The mirth of love
Twinkled in my heart

I then built my own forest
Of happiness, of love
Of peace, of blues
Of togetherness,
Of patience, of madness
Of creativity, of friendship
Of my own tunes,
Of my dreams…
I buried me somewhere
Amidst the woods
Now am lost
In my own forest

Perhaps, I may rise and bloom
From the seething dirt
And you shall see peace lilies
Blooming all over earth and heaven
Keep me safe keep me in disguise
Albeit, let me spread let me thrive
For the world to be at peace forever!
