Peace on Earth
Nature is troubled
with rusty air,
all creatures fear
what will happen
if none care!
none believe
God is where!
Fighting fighting
but none got
an end anywhere.
It is human creature,
should understand,
because sensitive
creature on the land.
Human should
be happy
on the land,
let be asked when?
Honesty that
all understand
and rusty air
will clear then.

O human! self trouble
not the world,
compare self as
the same as all,
function inside
you as same
as others of all,
why should
be troubled
or trouble fellows
in the world ?
O wild waves!
be not thunder
and be not selfish !
why harm safe
boats in the sea!
Forget not the earth,
from the sun,
all stars related
in the sky,
human has the bed
that is the earth
and the blanket
for all is the sky.
It is I respect others,
naturally I am
respected by others.
It is I earn living,
consequently it is
also helped others
in earning living.
It is the related world,
no mistake,
human works
for herself / himself
as well as for others
in the civil world.
