I think almost everyone seeks peace of some kind. It could be world peace, family peace or personal inner peace. Sometimes it seems unattainable for some people at least. This is a poem I wrote when I was given a writing prompt on Peace. I wish everyone Peace in their lives. I pray for peace in this world. Would it not be a wonderful thing if we all could agree to disagree and get along. Have a Peaceful day!
Peace is many times an elusive dream,
floating by so close to you it seems.
But you reach up to touch it and it is not there.
So hard when only one cares.
The pain it can cause can rip you apart.
Are the gifts it may bring worth a broken heart?
Peace is what everyone desires.
Do you pay the price more than you can afford?
Or do you keep as still as the mountain stands, making no
But then again you take the first step,
reaching out your hand,
only to have it slapped sending it back as fast as it can.
It happens lasting no longer than it has too.
Then the peace is gone again, do you fix it or let it end?
Sometimes there is no peace to be found,
It is then time to move on to higher ground.
