If It Was Not Terrorized - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

For all of the wealth one man has,
Another lives in poverty.
For all of the poverty that man has...
Another finds hope.
For all of the hope that man finds...
Another is motivated.
For all of the motivation that man has,
Another finds success.
And from all of the success stories told...
The quest for peace seems neverending!
Much like the cost of it that feeds fear,
And yet the price to find it...
Is more visible than it is to locate!
Perhaps if it was not terrorized,
It would appear!

    Brilliant poetry and irresistible sentiments. No-one doubts its necessity, but can it be brought to the table successfully? I think you're right. But how to get to peace from there? Thought provoking stuff as ever. (Report) Reply
