I wonder in a world free of pain
I peep at the beauty of its freshness
In a path where of no ache or pain
In the way where all hopes attained
To grasp the peace of no sickness
To peruse the words of no fear
In the light of a future, that spells soundness
In the midst of a world, that renders joy
But the more I approach its unlocked doors
The farther I’m kept away from entering
And so I get to wonder
whether I will ever see it
A world free of pain and ache
World without pain.
