PEACE

Peace—everyone seems to

be talking about it:

bring peace to the world

bring peace to the heart

bring peace to the mind

bring peace to the soul

.

The entire world is perpetually

consumed by this boisterous fervour,

alive with explosions of spiritual catharsis.

Those voices are eager, forever serenading,

serenading love, demanding action to be taken,

thanking God, exorcising demons,

screaming with joy and then spreading it.

.

Oh, these voices are eager, trying so hard

to decipher the codes and patterns

of the cosmic wheel, trying to solve problems,

trying to understand why people are the way they are

why life is the way it is—

.

Why the bullets are silent

Why hearts shatter without a sound

Why the soft hush in dark alleyways

Why are children’s cries muffled at night

.

Why their deepest epiphanies

are louder than the cacophony of lies

in the air as they collide

.

That’s right—

PEACE, everyone seems to be talking about it.

BRING PEACE TO THE WORLD.

BRING PEACE TO THE HEART.

BRING PEACE TO THE MIND.

BRING PEACE TO THE SOUL.

.

GIVE US PEACE.
