I created this poem as to fulfill one of the activities assigned in our class in Social Dimensions of Education. The task was to compose a song or write a poem about achieving peace and harmony. I opted to write a poem since I am not musically gifted.

A Way to Peace and Harmony
Hearing news of war and famine,
Makes me want to go to heaven.
But since I have my life to live,
I got no choice but to strive and heed.

Many times, I prayed for peace;
And often times, I would want to cease.
But since I wanted to be hopeful,
I always opted to be joyful.

There was a time I thought about harmony,
And then I thought it was all about money.
But since money does not make me happy,
I always find happiness with my family.

How do we really achieve peace and harmony,
When people stopped caring about everybody?
Can it be achieve with hope and prayer,
When godly people are now so rare?

As for me, I think there is a way;
To achieve peace and harmony today.
That is to pray to God and believe,
And live our lives to love and give.

I am not good in writing poems but I tried my best to write one. It is hard when you are tasked to do something that requires talent and creativity.

I believe in our hearts that we all wanted to believe and make a difference. And your right, faith plays a big role!

"To achieve peace and harmony today.

And live our lives to love and give."

I got to admit the world gets crazy everyday, so many accidents, unexplained and unwanted news are everywhere but then, there's faith – like they say, prayers can move mountains 🙂

Lovely poem!<3

Thanks for that. It comforts me that someone who writes poem can actually give praise to what I have done. Thank you so much!

I am sure you will be able to make one for your little man someday! It will come and pass!

not bad for someone who confesses to be "not good in writing poems." i used to burn the midnight oil trying to bleed rhymes with the aid of my pencil + my paper, i miss those days. one day soon, i hope i can make a poem for my little man, it is such a shame that i have not written him one yet….
