The Peaceful Mind

The Peaceful Mind

The family, things that do burden
The happy life, be these I find
The riches labored, only for the chosen
The prosperous ground

The peaceful mind

The foe, no grief or grudge
The world, no rule or governance 
Pandemics, the destitute long for a healthy life
A state of isolation, we endure 

The peaceful mind

Society, without debt
Sleepless nights, dreams plagued with inequity
Monarch's content with wealth as the world sets alight
Diversity used to justify

The peaceful mind
