Dark is the absence of light,
Hate is the absence of love,
Death is the absence of life.
Rules and laws are made by us,
Situations change but rules never change!
Is it fair enough?
We punish the wrong and reward the right,
With the hope that wrong never prevail;
How far is this right?
If the world has changed,
Why do we still talk of change!
If we all are sinners, then who are we to judge?
We are not prisoners;
We do not need rules to live,
Then why can’t we take a risk,
And think positive!
Arrest hatred, arrest the furious mind,
Punish jealousy and greed,
Leave the negative behind.
Right or wrong, good or bad,
Are we not aware?
Feel the depth of life, far and wide;
Let peace prevail worldwide.

I wish there was someone to help us in ” punishing greed and arresting the furious mind”.
I loved your poem and congratulate you on yet another brilliant attempt.
Thank you Susie for the kind words. Well, jealousy, greed, hatred, anger are in our minds. If we punish ourselves for all the negativity, do we need anyone else to punish us? 🙂
So true !
