Peace

Peace

A Poem by Piper Lynn
"

Is there hope that we will find a voice?

"

Why do you even bother?

You answer clear and strong,

Where there is love there is hope for me.


But they fight so heard against you

With wars and hate and death.

Why do you even bother?


People gather, speaking my name

Asking to give me a chance.

Where there is love there is hope for me.


They spit on your name, the bravest of men,

Killing children from miles away.

Why do you even bother?


People hold signs, the cowardly fools,

And are beaten within an inch of their life.

Where there is love there is hope for me.


Here I stand, among the people

And to the most diligent of men who ask

Why should I even bother?

Where there is love there is hope for peace.

There is always hope for peace, but only if we strive towards it, and we must start by spreading the word. Thank you for spreading the word and asking the questions.
