  • World Peace and Beyond

    when every single person abides in stable inner peace
    total world peace via piece by piece

    the answer to world peace has now been given
    every person practice compassionate forgiving

    all the world's problems caused by thought
    think with the heart or it's all for naught

    don't think "heart" refers to mortal beating flesh
    rather, our knowing Essence with all life enmeshed

    loving good-natured people has never been a chore
    they need love least, while the afflicted need it more

    yet, what we do is hate the loveless instead
    now we, and they, are further filled with hatred

    what kind of a world does this then lead to?
    one where we all have a distorted point of view

    all issues stem from consciousness pollution
    to solve a problem there's a spiritual solution

    a problem can't be solved from the level it was created
    with an entirely different paradigm alone can it be defeated

    violence begets violence, peace begets peace
    we've been running in circles with hardly a decrease

    one does not lead to the other—likes attract likes
    exacerbating an issue with military strikes

    rather than going to war, how about mass prayer
    thousands of people chanting "Om" towards our betrayer

    with no financial cost involved and nothing to lose
    being unaware that this is an option is the only excuse

    not questioning society and just going along
    we'll all be led astray surely before long

    not inquiring into man's many rituals and customs
    contemplate the consequential karmic symptoms

    from our endless psychosis, will we ever transcend?
    to higher understanding, make it a point to ascend

    the purpose of this world is to evolve in spirit
    essentially a purgatory, it contains the whole gamut

    from the lowest depths of pain, hell and suffering
    to the highest heights of Christ and Buddha Being

    there will never be complete peace on Earth
    if we're Enlightened there's no reason for rebirth

    the only goal worth pursuing is that of Enlightenment
    anything less is fundamentally irrelevant

    seeking God or Truth foremostly above all else
    then, the Mystics say, we're truly making progress

    what every Sage has taught has always been drastic
    highly divergent from the emphasizing of the scholastic

    Moses confessed to being a man of poor speech
    there are stories of illiterate monks outside the mind's reach

    having little to no education and still they surpass
    while the worldly learned treat them as third class

    practicing self-control and achieving the ultimate goal
    attaining union with All by the death of the soul

    This, and the other poems I've submitted to the contest are part of an epic poem called "Love All-Knowing" that I've been writing the last several months. Eventually, the goal is to self-publish. I would like to take this chance to just say thank you to the folks at Rhymezone for having this website available for free use—it's been an invaluable resource!
