Oh the price you pay today for happiness without satisfaction
For your joy is not joy, just a toy with which to fiddle like a riddle
But you can never solve this puzzle since you muzzled Wisdom
And drove her into the ground without a sound, pound for pound,
And you’ve taken leave of your sense, sit in a corner and grieve,
While fair young Peace stands ready to give you new lease on life
Not rife with pain without gain and no strife, gift of gold not cold
If only you’ll make bold to kneel and kiss his tender, lovely feet
And wrap tightly round him, within him, bound to him forever
And to never pay so high a price for what only looks to you nice

Awesome and such beautiful lines so well composed, Jonathan and I completely agree with you. We all are paying the price in our lives.
Yes, I’m afraid we are… And once more, thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words, dear Kamal. Abundant blessings be upon you!
You are always welcome dear Jonathan. Much love and light to you. Take care and stay safe.
