I was inspired to write the following after reading She Wolf Native’s blog entry today, entitled, "Yes, Virginia, There Can Be Peace! It really woke me up . . . I realized that I spend an enormous amount of time speaking and writing about world peace (and all that it entails). . . that I cause unpeace in those I speak about. . . also. . . I loose sight of my own peace at times. So for the rest of the day . . . perhaps tomorrow too. . . i’m going to chill!
Peace . . .
We wave peace signs high in the air;
picking and choosing crosses to bear
pointing fingers at his hatred or her sin
when will we find peace within ?
We hold them and those responsible…
for the world’s dire state of trouble
We spend so much energy on grandeur peace
that peace within has somehow ceased!
Is there peace in arguing ageless points
on wars, religion, do’s and don’ts…?
certainly there’s not peace in the heart of a man
who fights for peace with such disdain . . .
We fight for peace across the sea,
but can’t find peace inside the me!
So righteous we are; so patriotic;
yet our own homes; a mess. . . chaotic…
We’re arguing, fighting for human rights
causing ourselves and others peaceless, sleepless nights…
Let’s for one moment call a truce
Let’s find peace in accepting other’s views
Let us find our peace inside ourselves…
not diminish inner peace; stressing someone else
Perhaps if we all did this more often,
anxiety would lessen; all hearts would soften
It’s time to take a moment’s will..
sit back, relax, exhale and chill…
