WHERE IS PEACE

 

Where is peace

On a stormy night

Bombs exploding

Lightening flashing

 

My heart is tender

But afraid

I feel my way with

My fingertips

 

Thunder crashing

I cover my ears

Water seeps

Under the door

 

We were warned

Run away

Run away

But where will we go

 

Perhaps as long

As we can imagine peace

Even when the world does not

We can strive for it

 

A quiet morning

No ill will toward anyone

Even the birds are still sleeping

No one stirs

 

And yet the very next moment

Everything can change

The future is unknown

Perhaps peace only comes

In the in between

    The future is unknown
    Perhaps peace only comes
    In the in between

    Peace is so elusive no one seems to know when and none seems to care!

  2. Your poem makes me wonder if peace is an clever illusion we have brainwashed ourselves into believing is attainable.
