Let there be no war in the world By Bazargul Zivarova. Karakalpakstan
May the flower of life never wither.
Do not grieve for the Kevils,
May there never be a war in the world,
What all mothers wish.
The earth is the common home of all,
Peace is a gift, bestowed by
God. When the sun sets down, mornings come
Then the birds fly in the sky.
Someday the mountains shall have to breathe,
Only the good words will cure,
The future will only smell good,
And evil will go for sure.
Let’s wish each other peace,
Ignorance no more will hurt,
Let’s do it like the honest kids,
Heaven becomes this earth.
Translated by poet Santosh Kumar Pokharel
