One Moment In The Land Of Peace - Poem by Elizabeth Turner

I sit alone in peace surrounded by grass and trees,
away from civilization I feel relief.

The sun beats down upon my back,
and here I pedal over the faded track.

As ticks jump upon me to suck my blood,
I don't feel pain yet I feel the flood.

The flood of happiness that drove me here,
to this field that soothes my ears.

Now I sit here upon this cement block,
it holds so many memories they never stop.

Next time I need peace I know where I shall come,
because here total destruction will never be done.
