Peace Bound - Poem by Jasmine Shipp

Let Peace rain upon the children, the loved, the laughing, the crying.
Let Peace cover the sorrowed, the lost, the brave, the dying.

Let Peace move the hated, the men, the runners, the fighters.
Let Peace crowd the bothered, the masked, the winners, the liars.

Let Peace follow the cowards, the troubled, the wrong, the new.
Let Peace drown the unwanted, the shot, the commanded, the few.

Let Peace seize the plenty, the scared, the free, the shunned.
Let Peace chase the wounded, the frail, the protected, the sons.

Let Peace seek the worried, the wise, the widowed, the willed.
Let Peace mourn the pleased, the shushed, the common, the killed.

    Intense in the emotional plea for peace. I was dream in instantly, as I always sign my comments ending in PEACE.
    Far too few actually strive for peacefulness...I invite you to read my poem, All Love Is Love, as I think it has a similar message of hope. Thanks for your wonderful write. PEACE
