PEACE

PEACE 







We make war 
That we may live in peace.


Show me who won't love to take 
good tidings home to their people, 
That they may sleep in Peace.

For those who are at war with others
Are not at peace with themselves. 


*Anthonii Chinedum*


In our childhood days we heard our elders 
quote inter alia Ralph Waldo Emerson. 
 'The real and lasting victories 
Are those of peace, and not of war.'

This peace!!!
Many have mistook for religion.
And Religion!
Is so often 
The death of reason.


The quest for peace begins in the home, 
in the school, in the workplace
And the society.
But first and foremost, the heart.

'The most valuable possession we can own 
Is an open heart.'


To attain peace 
We must actually give our liives, 
Not just our possessions.
When we at last give our lives - 
Bringing into alignment our beliefs 
And the way we live then, and only then,
can we begin to find  peace. 


Know this! 
The most powerful weapon we can be 
Is an instrument of peace.

I hope we  truly find peace.
