Just Because 

Just because ….
As the time keeps moving on,
We need to move with its pace,
Lest, a step taken back,
May prove very dear later.

Just because ….
As the age keeps growing on
We need to transform as well,
But for certain, learn to shun,
Both our ego and ignorance.

Just because ….
As we wield some authority,
There’s no necessity,
To demonstrate supremacy,
Instead, win the hearts with love.

Just because ….
As we have abundant riches,
Instead of ignoring the suffering lot,
A compassion filled look at them
Bestows the richest of delights.


Yes, peace is really worth something
Never think, it’s absolutely nothing,
It gives human life, a real meaning,
In no time it can transform anything.

Yes, in the name of region and religion
In the name of inequity and suppression;
Leaving humanity to own fate and mercy,
Wars are fought just to gain supremacy.

Yes, a war is used as a destructive weapon
Creating hatred and revenge it invites ruin,
Women and children often face the wrath,
The unarmed civilians fear the blood bath.

Yes, let us all, project and promote peace
Let us uphold the flag of peace with a grace,
Let there be no more wars and destruction,
Peace is the only option for a lasting solution.
