By Anisgul 

    Peace is the place where people stay without fear,
    and children play because they are not scared.

    Everyone sleeps without bomb sounds,
    to live together in peaceful towns.

    Each morning birds wake up with peaceful singing; 
    they are trying to bring a peaceful springing.

    Bushes are growing without smoke of guns,
    to open their blossoms in a beautiful sun.

    Each child studies without harm or pain,
    and goes to school in a graceful rain.
