Peace Breaks Out

Peace is contained

The landscape of our world keeps changing with our safe places no longer feeling safe

The colors of authority are now masked in hues of orange and red, sending warnings and caution our way

A burst of song should not be followed by a blast of terror

Methods of transportation should not be vessels of destruction

World leaders should not invite chaos into the arena with incoherent thoughts that incite panic

What the world needs now is peace, sweet peace

We can worry about loving each other later, let’s get along first

When our personal geographical reach is limited to the comforts of home, there is a probable cause for concern

It’s time to indict fear and terror and put them on trial for limiting our reach of lands unknown

I wake up each morning wanting to see more of this world and every morning I’m given one more reason to stay put

It is not fair that our planet is besieged by souls who manufacture destruction and souls who perpetuate hate 

What the world needs now is peace, sweet peace

I’d love for the brushes of fate to paint another picture, but for now we watch as each day breeds new points of disruption

One more place not to visit

One more place not to see

One more place to fear

One more place where peace, sweet peace needs to enter creation

One more place where peace breaks out and is contained…

…no more
