Peace




Peace

Poetic prophecies caste unto the ears of the listener
Cries screamed out from pains and losses felt
Mother's tears painting faces of the losers
Prayers lifted on wings of faith to the Listener
Hearts broken, waiting for answers hidden

Traces remaining of man's passage, in time
Forever searching, for what could be
Lacking the wisdom to see what he has
Before him on bended knees, begging
For his search to end at the doors of Peace.
