Blessed Are The Peacemakers - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

There are those who believe
ridicule sarcasm argument
loud dominating discourse
designed to intimidate

are paramount
to achieving their goals
their dark agenda
this is a grave fault

critical matters of severity
are best severed
by a diplomacy
of respect courtesy patience

acknowledging
attempting to understand
all complexities
of conflict problems

did you never
think to stop
(to listen?
to learn?)


Continued disagreement
may result in atrocities
war mistaken diplomacy
by other more aggressive means.

Do we really
want to pay this price
spilling the blood
of vibrant youthful sons?


A blood sacrifice
to ransom our souls
and spiritual guidance
was painfully given

two thousand
years ago.
Many cultures
great thinkers

before and after have constantly
espoused this same message
across centuries of violent upheavals
but still you will hear listen not.

Blessed are the Peacemakers
for they shall
finally inherit
a new earth

after darker souls
have destroyed
the old earth
with hate bigotry

a simple recipe
for peace
written in noodle
cooking time!
