Let there be peace in the world,
more laughter and love for our boys and girls.
Let goodwill and kindness, no matter your color,
be spread through the hearts of our brother.
Let compassion pour through our words and actions,
pulling all violence from our media attractions.
Let there be peace in the world,
to end all suffering for our boys and our girls.

Thanks so much for stopping by and

    1. I know, if only, Jean…and I’m glad Ireland has found peace. It seems things are just getting worse in the USA and other parts of the world and I don’t know what the answer is…

  1. I love how you have composed this Lauren, the alternate lines as a list of things to be done and the consequences in italics. Both sets of lines can be read separately and I think that is what makes this poem so powerful. Just wonderful. And even if all we are able to do is write about it as you have done and share with the world then we are doing our best to spread love and peace. I think on a greater scale it is something we can feel very powerless over. ❀️ Xxx

    1. Thanks so much for your insight, Chris. It’s really very simple, but I thought the message was powerful enough to share with the world. πŸ™‚ I’m at a loss as to what the answer is to bring peace into our world and push the violence out. I’d like to think of myself as a hopeful, optimistic person, but I’m on the same page with you feeling very powerless overall. I just keep praying and hoping someday the news will share a great big miracle…β™₯

    1. Very true and I wish that could happen. I just wish everyone could accept each other for who they are and agree to disagree, if that’s the case. It sounds so simple, but it’s not…xx

  2. Your poem is a plea, as you say, to connect with our better selves and create the kind of world that all are able to enjoy. It is especially difficult to accept the insidious presence of violence in our culture and media. A well-spoken plea for harmony and peace. Thanks.

I appreciate your thoughts!
