PEACE, WHERE IT LIES?

 

 

Where does peace lie?

 

Is it that light aired garden
where trees wave troubles Goodbye
And sing lullabies to sorrows?

 

Is it standing by the soft, clean
Flowing stream, so fresh,
Quietly lugging angst along?

 

Is it kneeling in prayer,
Rendering clothes
and throwing weighty conscience
In the face of deities?

 

Is it the self fulfilling of conscience
Which cannot be reaved by laws
so selfish and unjust?

 

Is it the silence after a shot?
That silence, the silence,
blessed by the transcendence of a soul?

 

Where lies the peace?

 

 

 

 

 

TODAY: TOMORROW

 

 

Today,
We stand at the castle road.
Casting our eyes back,
the independence is evident.
Cast our mind back
Vassalage rules!

 

Today,
We march on,
Ahead, we march
To the reassurance of nothingness.

 

Today,
We look back
Wail in the freedom of venality
As we curse today.

 

Today,
Faith rules, unvoted for,
As democracy and freedom sit in selfishness.

 

Today,
Births tomorrow!

 

Tomorrow cometh today!
