Two Poems from Ranjeeta Nath Ghai, One of the 2016 Poets for Peace

Guiding Light

The present is here
The past doesn’t exist anymore 
And the future hasn’t me yet.
No time to sit and mope over past regrets.

Be grateful for all that you have today
And all that is given to you.
Love unconditionally, love freely.
Grow in love; celebrate what you have.

The halls and gullies of your mind
Are filled with haunting memories.
They shall whisper to you every day,
The heartbeat of which will never fade.

Your home; your family; is where your heart is.
Some days may be tough,
So if you don’t just sit and mope
Together, you will be able to cope.

Don’t sulk and sob, whine and cry.
All you need is some peace and quiet.
Let love follow wherever you go.
Allow your heart to always be filled with hope.

Leave sad thoughts behind, and
Let harmony and joy fill your mind.

— Ranjeeta Nath Ghai

In Peace I Protest
 
For replacing towering trees with skyscrapers
And soil with concrete.
For arms and ammunition in the hands of children
And children in wombs addicted to drugs.
For every abused citizen of the country
And every veteran fighting for his right
In peace I protest.
 
For every menacing bomb that replaces literature
And takes away our freedom of speech.
For every forceful government
Whose policies leave us numb.
For every farmer whose yield goes waste
And inflation breaking his backbone driving him to suicide.
In peace; I protest.
 
For every citizen continually fighting 
For the right to represent himself as an equal.
For paid media creating a chaotic and a violent environment
As they continually prove they are pawns to the system.
For extreme consequences that nonconformity brings
And disparities on pretext of complexion, culture, and religious beliefs.
In peace I protest.
 
It’s time to speak up
And protest against the laws
That allow the violation of our human liberties
And deterioration of our resources.
It’s time to lead, and simplyBe the change we want to see
It’s time to protest in peace.

‘The United States Of Planet Earth‘ is Michel Montecrossa’s 
New-Topical-Song about the way into the future.

Michel Montecrossa says about ‘The United States of Planet Earth’:


“Truth or the abyss is the current situation: more greed, more 
conflicts, more poverty, more injustice, more climate change, more 
natural disasters, famines and more helplessness or a world wide 
awakening. If we want to have a future, or even want to survive, we need 
the United States of Planet Earth – there is no other way out.“

Song Lyrics
The United States Of Planet Earth

The United States of Planet Earth
are my vision of the future world.
The United States of Planet Earth
with the United Nations as world government.

The Union of Eurasia
are my vision of the next step
on the way to reach the great goal
of the United States of Planet Earth.

The living celebration of humanity
is my vision of the future world
on an earth of peace and happiness,
of freedom and joy for all.

Through work for all and equal wages,
through justice for all in all lands,
through giving and taking in the right way,
through friendship of all on the future planet.

The United States of Planet Earth
are my vision of the future world:
All nations united in the will for peace
and progress on the way into space age.

Space age time.
Space age wide.
