Peace Is A Verb - Poem by Renee Marie

Doing peace
inside
yourself
means
first
wrestling
with your own demons.
Memories do not
own you.
injustice
does not
justify more crimes of hate.
Make peace
with your demons,
your memories,
the injustice.
Come back to the humin
family...
ready, confident, honest,
open and hopeful.
Come back
eager to share ideas
we can all LIVE with!
We need you to be
fully engaged and present;
PEACE
IS
A
VERB.
