Love of Peace

We seem to have forgotten That there’s a lion loose in a Neighborhood of fear Don’t sing this to me all these years later The melody of a mane barely visible The murky light of a beacon That transcends a multitude of knowing The fear is unreasonable But simultaneously real Absent from vision, the roar Is deafening In the ears straining to hear The sound of peace

Hi Janet, it is a far away feeling, to find peace. ---- The heart is not visible to the eye, however, every melody has light when voicing the sound of peace. LINDA
