Peace - Anybody? - Poem by Lilibeth Sacmar Apat

There is a peace talk held today
The land's future is being decided
Everyone must keep his cool
Or all will end in a disastrous coup.

Why is peace so elusive?
Do we really have to triple our effort
For something that must come naturally?
Everyone, I know, needs it.

Why does peace have its price?
Why do we bargain? Why make deals?
Is it a commodity only simple men can afford?
Or is it non-existent after all?

Strange how things work out
For peace, someone must die
For peace, people have to fight - ironical!
Peace we crave and peace there's none.

    This is really great and so true. The last line is probably my favourite, 'Peace we crave and peace there's none'. Awesome poem.
