PEACE

peace/>

Sometimes the simplicity of some cause us to believe a lie

Sometimes we believe that whatever is will always be

Sometimes…many times

This is untrue

When one is born with the freedom to walk free, he may not understand how that is…

Where there has ‘forever’ been the freedom to speak

Where to live is bliss because to live is to be free

Sometimes we believe that whatever is will always be

Sometimes the simplicity of some cause us to believe a lie

Could this be why it takes only a spark to start fires we cannot stop?

…why it would seem we want what is to be but on the flip side

Hang on to what will burn away the simplicity of what we know, what we have?

Could it be why we blindly poke holes into the fabric that holds the tapestry?

PEACE

Sometimes we believe that whatever is will always be

Such times we forget that whatever is was because a price was paid

…whatever is was because hands labored and hearts strived

For what is a tapestry, without the canvas to bear it?

What is a nation, a people, a family, a heart

Without PEACE to hold it…without PEACE to nurse it?

Sometimes we believe that whatever is will always be

Sometimes…many times

This is untrue

Sometimes we need to look and see that that which we believe is a lie

Sometimes…many times, we need to fight to defend what is

We need to stand for what is ours…what we need

Sometimes…is now

Fight and defend…stand for what we need

PEACE
