Precious Peace Like Pearls

Precious peace like pearls
by Rizwan Ahmed Memon

I have a peaceful world;
Because I have simplicity and silence.
I have a peaceful world;
Because I have fewer friends.

I depend on no one but myself;
This way I save myself from hurt.
I have a peaceful world;
Because I have fewer wishes, hopes and plans.

Loneliness keeps me away
From the turmoil of other people.
I have a peaceful world;
Because I have peaceful friends, like nature herself.

Countryside colors fill my life;
I am away from the noise of the city.
I have a peaceful world;
Because birds sing songs here.

The quiet of the night provides nice slumber;
In the day, I write poetry under the shadows of the trees.
I have a peaceful world;
Because I have fewer possessions.

I hope my grave and never-ending world
Will be peaceful, too.
I make something for the Hereafter;
Because this peaceful world is temporary.
