Day of Peace. {Poem}

There is no greater truth

Than what the heart speaks.

To lay down one’s arms

Is to simply place them down

At our sides.

The only clash we need to have

Is the clasp

Of our own two hands.

There exists no barrier

Boundary

Or misunderstanding

When human emotion is expressed.

A display of peace

Is a simple handshake

Hug

Or smile

And laughter too.

We’ve bordered the walls

Of our mind.

Held ourselves captive

Hostage

To our own demands.

The heart knows no boundaries

Borders

Or illusory ties that bind.

Let us simply love

On this day

On this day of peace.

May this day

Lead to many more

Many more moments of peace.

Peace within

Will ultimately lead

To love and understanding

All around.

Amen.
