Smile For Peace


Smile
Smile and smile
Like lily like jasmine
Like rose like champak
Like lotus like sunflower
O my dear, smile and smile.
With smile love emerges
With smile you become united
With smile you are in peace
Remember no dog smile
Remember no corpse smile
Heart-full smile is a necessity.
Smile smile
And smile smile
Remember my dear smile not
Like Draupadi that would
Be a prime cause of a great war
You are here for peace nor for war.

    When she realised she couldn't be stripped
    did she smile at the power she had
    to smile at a man, then refuse him?
    That Goddess of Teasing, Gaji,
    did she abuse that power she had? (Report) Reply
