Frustration can only turn people from you, create hatred, call for revenge and initiate war. Try listening and all that you want will be achieved.
When your plan failed you, do not fail but continue planning. One day you shall achieve your plan.
Not the quantity of books you read will expand and originate your thinking but the experience you had gathered from them.
“PEACE; THOU HATH GONE FAR”
Since the antecedent of man thou peace has be
Togetherness we were like mother and son
You gave, we took and lived like bee
But ungrateful we are and leave you like nun
Indeed, you weight above thinkable ton.
Out of a sudden, you leave our room
Not only but also the path of others.
Is it our sins that sound always boom
Or restless of our tongue that split the orders?
The laws of peace laid by the elders.
Can we really say the cause is the blood?
The blood of the sackless and sweat of the poor
Pensions of the pensioners and effect of their mud
Revenge of the infants who live in poore
And see their drivers in jeeps and lovers for voyeur.
By heaven, we wring our garment from unpick tears
The news of the day are the roasted heads
The symbols of fear are the monk bears
Pray you back peace to unite our hands
Before the flute is piped and teds are sleds.
