Poem about Peace

Happiness is spread
All over the world
But it only goes to the one who deserves it best
They will be happy for a time very long
But then it will come to an end
No one will ever find it again
This is why we must be peaceful
To the world and other people
This way happiness will spread all over the world
And we will all be happy till the end.

— Duha M.
