Interesting story in simple language and can inspire to live life in a new way

Many years ago, there lived a small boy named Pawlo in a village near the river bank. He belonged to a poor family and hence didn't had any house to stay. Pawlo and his parents had made a small hut out of thaw, dried leaves  grass and bamboo sticks in the forest near the river. After few days of struggling to get work, Pawlo's father finally got some work of transporting goods from one place to another. Pawlo, was a very shy and quiet boy who didn't like to be in crowded places. He just loved to roam in the forest and sit by the riverside watching the river for hours. His father would also take him sometimes to the places, he transfered goods, and Pawlo would just sit quietly or would watch his surroundings with keen interest. And the time passed by, now Pawlo and his parents were no longer a poor family and also had a new house built in the village far away  from the river. Pawlo, now used to go to the school but he always just waited to school to get over and he would rush to the forest and would sit beside the river, watching the surroundings. He would love to see the different colours surrounded the river. One day, he got a homework from his teachers that he will have to write an essay on the topic 'The Beautiful Landscpe'. Pawlo told his mother that for his homework he would have to go to the forest. His mother agreed but also told him to come before it is dark. He took his chalk, slate and a white paper along with him to the forest and sat by the riverdide for hours and enjoyed the view of the beautiful landscape. But he didn't wrote the essay, instead of that after enjoying the view, an idea came to his mind of doing something on paper and he smiled. He thought that he would bring out the colours of the landscape on the paper and then made natural colours, after that he painted a  beautiful landscape of the river bank along with the flowers green grass, butterflies, the river flowing by and the sunset with all natural colours. After doing all this Pawlo didn't felt tired but more energetic and experienced and overwhelming joy in himself. He then went back to his home along with the painting and slept pracefully at night. When he got to school and told his teacher that instead of writing an esssay on the topic he had painyed it, his teacher told him to show the painting and everyone except Pawlo was amazed to see such a beautiful landscape painting looking real and praised Pawlo for his masterpiece art. Then after some days, Pawlo's teacher called him and told him that what he had shown them on paper was called a painting  painted by various colours and asked him if he can paint some more paintings like that and give to his teacher but Pawlo refused and immediately left the place. For everybody else it was just a painting of a beautiful landscape but for Pawlo, it was all real and not a mere painting but peace that he had depicted from the real sight on to the paper, hence he can't just paint anything according to somebody else. He said to everyone who had seen his painting that for them it could just be a mere painting  or drawing, first drawn something and then colourrd but it was not true ,for him that was not just a painting, it was peace and joy out of which he created out the masterpir e. Hence, he requested all of them not to tell him or advice him about what should be done corect or wrong about the painting and also not to ask him to make another. It was not a thing that can be made anytime ordered or sell it to anyone. It was his love, his joy which he would get by sitting beside the river in the forest surrounded by nature and all different colors, it was PEACE for him.
