A Glimpse Behind the Veil

Written by: Carole Cookie Arnold

A Glimpse Behind The Veil Sitting on the edge Of humanities tomorrows Deploying weapons of Warfare that banish sorrows Searching for land mines hidden As deep reminders of past failures Disarming their explosive content Of captivity, giving all closure Repairing damages to the Fabric that warriors wear Battle has shredded its Emotional threads with tares Blue eyes are the seas quenching The raging fires removing the smoke Kindness rides in on wings of love Peace appears as promising rainbow doves Finesse and poise arise with divine grace Signifying that America has kept her pace Wisdom born through the sacrifice of time Harmony is the gatekeeper of rhythm and rhyme Unity Holds the hourglass Of time in place One who ventures Away to chaos is defaced Carole Cookie Arnold
