“Unearth me!” cried Peace

Digging deep, buried

Many holes, but none reaching the foot


“Inhale me!” cried Peace

Holding breath, exhale

Staggering along with goals so vast


“Believe me!” cried Peace

Doubt and fear, rise up

Suffocate open space; letting go


“Receive me!” cried Peace

Condition, not one

She holds us all in her arms of grace


“Forgive me!” cried Peace

Crying shame, tears flood

She cannot save us from ourselves now


“Love with me!” cried Peace

Trying hard to teach

Can we learn to love one another?


“Release me!” cried Peace

Shackled tight, oppressed

Under our rage; we must set her free
