Let there be peace

Let there be peace

I feel the anger in the air
The demons teeth be nashing
As egos filled with fire and fury
Send off the words, a flashing.
And yet in creativity
You can bet your life there’ll always be
A lot of feelings running free
Though that’s a road to misery
On this I have no doubts.

Yet I would say from my position
“Competing leads to opposition.”
The creative flame it needs this not
For this might damage it a lot
You’ll maybe find this out.

I hope the anger dissipates
And burns out all its passion
So peace may come along again
In a wondrous kind of fashion.
Then we’ll get back to writing verse
Be it the best, be it the worst.
Put our hearts into the songs
Forget us all this carry on.
Throw the egos to the wind
And let the words again begin.

    Peace is what we all need. I pray for that everyday. Sometimes we don't even have peace in our own family. Great poem, Thanks for sharing... Lucilla

    You are the one that inspires others. I find it hard to believe that my comments can inspire you. But, thank you Peter.

    i guess i'm out of the loop, peter, because i really don't know what's been going on on the site, although it doesn't sound very positive. you've made some excellent points here, though, in your very poetic way...

    I don't know much about it myself Ilene cause I rarely go on the blogs, but I know that good writers are leaving the site because of in fighting, and I think this is trivial nonsense. thank for your comments, my friend....peter

    I am only hearing about all this second hand, and that's fine with me. I once wrote an operating and media plan for an interactive learning center hosted by some psychologists. I had to take all their courses and read all their books. And I learned. Thus, some things that people struggle with seem rather transparent, if not trivial to me. This is a good poem with appropriate rhyme. Nice to read you again.

    It came out of the blue for me too, Mark, but we are losing such nice people because of this. Why take life so seriously, it was meant for happiness. I appreciate your kind comments, my friend....peter
