How Real Peace Is Lived - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Treated with a taste of truth,
That minimizes rudeness...
Is soon to come.

Beating up yourself with troubles,
Snacking on stale bubblegum...
Is over and done!

The map of life,
Has gotten brighter.
Hot spots lit...
Have added misplaced pieces!

Wars and fights,
Ignited around the world...
Aren't won,
Or satisfied to thrill
When love decreases!

Keeping in perspective,
What's expected and demanded...
Is refreshing.

Making stands that hands of all be clean,
Seems instantly insane...
But must be done!

People must see,
The paths of their destinies...
Unbroken!

No one has the right to take,
What God has given us each to make.
Instead we move ahead to fake peace...
By disturbing freedoms!

Treated with a taste of truth,
That minimizes rudeness...
Is soon to come!

People must feel freedom as it is,
Or nothing is felt as free as peace...
And the chase for it
Just keeps us on the run!

Wars and fights,
Ignited around the world...
Aren't won,
Or satisfied to thrill
When love decreases!

People must feel freedom as it is!
People must feel that peace is positive!

Peace is positive...
When peace itself alone survives,
And left sensitive to give
That's how real peace is lived!
