Peace for the Soul

A common space for harmonic peacemakers


love certainly

i am conducting this pertinent search
for certainty
that i may come to terms
with this hurt in me
a place where no Sun shines
or smiles exist
where the blossoms of understanding
desists
and i know not why
i cry inside like this

you see, i see
when i look across this landscape of humanity
i see a flourishing garden of insanity
and we profane our divinity
oops . . . . there goes another virginity
one who no longer believes
in the goodness
or their ability to conceive
of a better life
devoid of all this unnecessary strife

i look at the villages
and what used to be communities
immersed in wars
and the fears . . .
and i feel them
and i pray they feel me

the children’s smiles suffer
with an empty silence
for they are no longer vibrantly reflected
in their expectations
… beyond the now

Life has lost it’s colorful hues
and those who sit in the Pews
do they truly, really give a damn
man
yes ma’am
yes sir
yes who is going to fix this
collapsed bridge from bliss
this
yes this is why
i am conducting this pertinent search
for certainty
that i may come to terms
with the hurt in me

the more i look consciously
across this landscape of humanity
there is a certain insanity
that makes me ask
am i awake ?
can it be
so i plea within my self
to my self
to please allow me to escape
my nightmare
please turn on the light of resolution
to end this pollution
of our higher states of being

yes, i am conducting this pertinent search
for certainty
that i may come to terms
with this hurt in me

my Brothers and Sisters are
hungry, diseased and fearful
and woeful
and full of despair
and anguish
and what dreams come
to their spirits of continual torment
and need
and i plead with you
as do they
this day
every day
won’t you help me
with this pertinent search
for certainty
that we may come to terms
with the hurt in me
in you . . . in humanity
with
Love certainly
