Peace

At first, a flicker

a dying flame

what we could see, was all the same

and though we tried

we could not fathom

how hearts could beat

and love, in tandem

Slowly, slowly

grows the light

it shimmers there in sheer delight

‘Believe’ it cries

‘and I shall glow,

the brightest star you’ll ever know’

it is a choice we all must make

and all mankind is what’s at stake

do we fill our souls with hate and fear

or give love a chance to come ever near

I choose the light of this tiny flame

and so it grows

Peace is its name
