Keep the Peace

“Keep the Peace”

 When the world doesn’t move to our rhythm we tend to lose our peace
If we yield and bend like water our pain would surely cease
God teaches us to be kind and gentle when we’re treated with anger and hate
We need to absorb this teaching or come to a fiery fate
This is what Jesus taught us when his limbs were bound with nails
Clear thought, love and compassion is the way that never fails
When the dark side seems to find us be strong and see the light
And let His warmth rush through you and tell you everything’s alright
For the world is in need of good words that strengthen and reinforce
And dream the dream of dreams and stay steadfast on your course

    I enjoyed reading your poetry this morning Rick. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I am going to see if I can write something for a couple contests this weekend. Hope you find the inspiration to do the same. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Love, Carol
