That Fight For Peace

​In The History Of Hindu Mythology, Ravana, The Demon King Was Killed By Unity Which Symbolized That Good Alone Triumphs Over Evil And thus, Prevailed Peace And Harmony. But After Centuries, Is The Ravana Truly Dead…Or Is He Still Alive? Do We Still Have To Fight For Peace?

Checkout @Voices Of Youth


Ravana died; came the light,
In the history of world, an antagonist died.
But, did all the evils hide,
To make my world look like a pious bride?
Have I got the world of my dreams?

Where the wind was blowing,
The water in the rivers was flowing,
I could see some children ploughing.
They were the treasures of God,
Ragged in clothes, stood amidst some rods.

Their feet were dusty, their faces looked rusty,
Her hair was brown, his face was dusky,
Working in the scorching sunrays of the sun,
Standing barefoot, how could they survive?
If I would have been there, I could have run.
Were they not blessed by God’s blessings,
The little boys and girls were poor orphans.

I couldn’t imagine the lives they lived,
They also lived in a city which was so urban.
Metropolis is so modernized and well-equipped, I heard,
But seeing the condition I was so disturbed.

They were all child laborers,
Who worked for people, truly they were murderers.
They snatched the happiness out of their lives,
And killed their childhood with sharp knives.
They ruined their lives with ease.

We need to fight for peace,
As the battle has just begun.

My Mother World, I have a question,
In the chambers of my heart,
Will this be the condition of the human race?
Oh! Mother World,
Think of those who do odd errands,
All with their little hands,
Their lives just run like sand,
So, this thing strikes my mind often,
That has the Ravana truly died?

Mother World tell me,
Who says the Ravana has died?
He is still in those who kill the girl child,
And vanquish the epitome of beauty and valor,
Are they pariah or will they imprecate!
Jewels, don’t know why these iniquitous hate.
They ruined their lives with ease.
We need to fight for peace
As the battle has just begun.

He is still in those who turn wild and unkind,
He betrays; he cheats; he knows how to turn out,
The lights of the lives.
He is the one, who creates rifts,
Among the people on basis of caste, color or creed,
And this leads to the insurgence, which snatches,
The innocent sons of the humanity.

He has no space for love and creates mistrust,
You don’t know him, but he is the one, who,
Wears the mask of a great sage,
But leaves the innocent tormented in a locked cage.
They ruined their lives with ease.

We need to fight for peace,
As the battle has just begun.

Mother World tell me,
Who says the Ravana has died,
He lives within us and creates rage in us,
Delves into our minds, our bodies rust,
And by slaughtering our inner souls, leaves us pierced in holes. 

There is intolerance and prejudice,
Which gets injected in all of ours’ veins,
And by showing his might,
Ravana proves that he has not died.

Truth alone triumphs is a true saying,
But don’t you think realities are decaying.
Is the Ravana truly dead?
I think it’s a myth,
Because the throat of love is slit.
Is the existence of Ravana truly denied?
Mother World tell me, 
Who says the Ravana has died?

But my Mother World will conquer the malevolence,
With her strength, audacity and unanimity.
She says her destiny is written with the intrepidity of the rising progeny
And not by the hands of agony.
This is the battle against the terror prevailing as insanity.

And yes, in my dreams, I see the children,
Inscribing the future of the human race.
I see that in the land of harmony,
The crimes just vanished and the golden birds emerged,
As a quintessence of tranquility and serenity.
The weapons of this war
Are unity and amity.
We have to be ready, soldiers,
As the enemy is not so far.
They ruined their lives with ease.
We need to fight for peace
As the battle has just begun.

Living in a society where poverty and melancholy is an alien,
My Mother World promised to me, 
“My child, thee be freed of all clutches,
You will have your dream come true,
Soon you will have the world of your dreams,
And the world will be no more blue.”
They ruined their lives with ease.
We need to fight for peace,
As the battle has just begun.

  3. That discussion can go long because you are better than everyone else I read on WordPress.

    I wish that too..but i am afraid that meeting me will only disappoint you. Perhaps you can meet me, you just have to look around you and find a guy who looks pale, who stares nowhere but down while crossing a public place or a place where there are some people. You can find me in every guy who is stuck to his phone just to avoid the world. I am there. Go and talk to them. It will make them feel good and vice versa.

    And may Allah bring you all the success you desire and all the happiness you deserve. You are so powerful writer. Keep writing your words can bring change.

    1. No words……..❤
      I am feeling so better…
      I can’t say that your words..have been like a therapy to me..You are surely unique..You have done a humanitarian act today..I mean least to say…you have changed my perspective… I will surely remember you in my prayers to Allah…

      Today.. I have seen an example that angels do exist..
      Thank you so much..
      You are invisible.. Yet so impactful…
      I wish that the way you are saying that I can find a person like you in any person..(which is quite dicey..i must say..)
      World will be so much nicer with people like you around…

      May Allah bless you and your family and may he provide you the strength to overcome all obstacles of life(may there not be any) and keep alive the lovely human in you❤

      1. So kind of you Rida. But I am no Angel. Angel are much more pure and I am a human who is an ocean of sins. But very kind of you to say that. There’s Angel in each one of us.
        May Allah bless you too and your family.
        Nice to meet you Rida❤️ and I am Salik🤗
