Peace

Posted on Updated on

Just like before
We harmonize the land.

Why?

To rest, recoup, repair,
Keep our people happy,
Then we go to war again;
We must expand.

But women will be killed,
Children and babies lost,
Homes destroyed
Corpses everywhere.
What for! What for! Why!
Why carry on so mercilessly.
Its time to think, to talk,
To see the difference,
To share the land,
Have lasting peace.

They will not listen to our plan,
They do not care for us.
We must ensure we are secure;
What they do is not our concern.

Of no concern?

No! they are not like us,
They have a different God,
They’re from a different land;
For them we do not care.

We’ll harmonize the land!

Peace And Peace Of Mind

Posted on Updated on

Peace
Peace and peace
Peace and peace of mind
Are absolutely different
From one another.

I know, You know
And we have forgotten
What is known here
At this juncture, my dear,
And we find no creature.

At Peace

Posted on Updated on

I feel so at peace…
To know that there is
Something good in my life!
I feel so sublime…
As though this world
Can no longer break me!
I feel so alive…
Having tasted love
Having been with you!

At The Peace Center

Posted on Updated on

Each word is a stone
rearranged by the spring tide
down at the seashore.

Earth, air, water, fire
are conjoined here in one piece
at each poem’s heart.

When the tide comes in
all the stones are tossed about
by the water waves.

The process goes on
day and night deep in our minds
with each new thought.

There are two movements
ever at work in all things-
even in ourselves.

These movements make us
Tangential and radial.
We stroke and we poke.

We bump and we scrape
as do the smoothed stones
along a cobbly seashore.

We move like the stones
moving down at the mind’s beach
being rearranged.

The rising waters
immerse us and we compose
in recreation.

Our view is shaken
in each kaleidoscopic
movement to novelty.

Those who are ready
to have their world rearranged
drown in the love tide.

Words come together
to make us compatible
at the peace center.

Peace, Peace, Peace

Posted on Updated on

Peace,
Bring it on
Peace, peace
You do no wrong
Peace, peace, peace
You are strong

Stronger then hatred
Stronger than fear
Stronger than the dark powers
of a troubled mind

Peace
Stay with me
Peace, peace
Flee not, try to be kind
Peace, peace, peace
Why hath thou so tough to find?

Peace Brings Peace

Posted on Updated on

A generation that loves peace will bring peace,
for if you focus on war you bring disease.
Disease in the mind that we are separate,
we are all from the same source.
Nothing dies of course,
it just changes form.
So when we think we have won
by killing another human
we really have not, have your forgot?
