Envious of no one

Have you ever wondered
Why our wars have no end?
And peace no friend
No settlement, ever wandered!

The deadly potion, envy
A loving poison, hearty heavy
A crush of love, mould of hate
Rise of a lethal mind state...

Do you ever wish an end
To wails and agony of wars?
Let love wrap hands extend
Bolting forever envy doors...

Merry with success
Your shut gates, give access
Milk the young fine juice
Flush out the feud ice...

Embrace clean shoulders
Unseen eyes, pure look
Lips attractive laughters
Void of venom and wan outlook...

Let your heart this mind
Envious of no one
Be kind of a good kind
For peace ever to be won...
