“A Peaceful Existence”

There’s a disturbance
in the midnight sky so vast and wide
an aching need for silence
in the world as we know it today.

Bombs fall where tranquillity
once stood tall on sunlit days,
now fire fills the skies
nothing to be heard but cries.

Why does it have to be
this way in our lifetime’s humanity,
stop the bloodshed now,
the degradation of the human soul.

The shattering of hearts,
the disruption of the human spirit
with fire running wild
over the land of peaceful serenity.

The only fight to be waged
is the battle for love’s true reality,
no more death due to hate,
no more killing in our existence.

Just breathe in and out,
believe in the light of peaceful hope,
one step towards the sunrise
that burns down all the pain of war.
