An Era Of Peace

could this one be?
Where there is no war,
one free from gunshots,
a year where tranquility

Guns and knives in schools
where children should
have pens and pencils,
causes concern. Tragic to see
young ones die. A shudder
passes through the spine.

My wish could become true,
if man thinks for a while,
notices the havoc around him,
experiences the pain and cries
a year of goodwill and amity
could happen.

This may sound didactic
but cannot help being so.
I envisage this year
and the subsequent ones
pass smooth.

I visualize a paradise
