A World Of Peace - Poem by Raymond Ellis Nielsen

Peace is radiating fingers of morning sunlight caressing a gradually illuminated sky;
Cumulus clouds softly tumbling through vision, gently passing the rising golden orb;
Birds fluttering and animals briskly moving, with all the joy that freedom can imply;
The human hand reaching out to help another, in desperate need; equality to absorb. Absolute and complete tolerance of another while pursuing pure and positive coexistence;
A given opportunity for education and employment, without fear of public repression;
Speaking of one's mind in defense of cherished values. Without facing resistance;
The family as a complete unit, encircled in the ring of faith while voicing their profession. Safety in walking the street and freedom to go out without fear of encountering terrorist
attack;
Mutual understanding and cooperative effort in building communities wherein all may be;
Mankind assisting mankind at home or across the sea, with no wars to turn the skies
black;
Smiling children and joyous days; this is what it means in a world of peace, for you and me.
