Poems about the World

Short poems and quotes about the world.

No matter what the world
Does to me,
No matter what the world
Thinks of me,
No matter what the world
Says about me,
I shall always be for the world,
For the betterment of the world,
As long as I am in the world of the living.

Sri Chinmoy (1)

World-acceptance, world-concern,
World-patience, world-sympathy
And world-oneness
Give my life
A peace-fountain-heart.

Sri Chinmoy (2)


O world-sorrow,
You are too heavy for me to bear.
O world-delight,
You are too light for me to endure.
O God-Sorrow,
I know not how deep
Or how intense you are,
You contain
The world in its beginningless sorrow
And its endless joy
For sure.

Sri Chinmoy (3)

A new world of peace,
A new world of light,
A new world of height,
Can alone give me

Sri Chinmoy (4)
