Finding Paradise

Daily Prompt- Place

The space where,
Respect lingers in the valley of Religions,
Love flows in the River of struggle,
Lotus blooms in the pond of compassionate tears
Where is that paradise on earth?

The place where,
Humanity lingers freely,
Guided by the light of that one God.
A mother is not worried,
For the protection of her little child.
Where is that Paradise on earth?

A heaven where,
There is no Bloodshed,
There is only greed of sharing love,
There is only support for the weak,
And the people are not separated by wealth.
Where is that Utopian World?

    I liked how you played with the words in this line: “There is only greed of sharing love.” Creative. Although the poem strike me a sad note, making me remember all the negatives in church and community, yet it rings with hope that things can get better.

      tried to make greed a positive word here! It is very sad and disappointing, the attack on churches in India and pakistan these days. I wonder ,when the people will understand that they are disrespecting the same God everytime!

        I am not sure if they will ever realize, religion has divided neighbours so bad. Once in a while, some incident happens and everyone unites on the surface but then a few weeks later things fall apart. It is like something is poking for chaos. Sad.

    I think we’ve passed that stage. The stage where love was in abundance and division was minimal. Your words speak bulk. 🙂
