† † † † † † † † † †Peace.....

Everything comes from God above

Both Heaven and earth agree

That peace will only come through love

Once truth has set us free

When lost mankind does Heavenís will

By righting things gone wrong

Loveís grace will dawn her heart to fill

With joy to sing lifeís song

But still our wars on earth increase

It seems that no one cares

What is this thing the world calls peace?

What are the fruit it bears?

We need to learn to pray as one

To cease each selfish fight

Until true peace through love is won

Till hearts through Christ unite

Before mankind can live as blessed

The Truth the world must see

Her differences must come to rest

Her wars must cease to be

We disagree through injured pride

We kill because of hate

Because of foolish things inside

To love, we close the gate

When through mankind true peace we sow

Guided by love and grace

In individuals faith can grow

To seek The Fatherís face

What is true peace without true love?

How can the world survive?

How can a soul join Christ above?

And ever stay alive.....†

About the Poet
I never wrote a word of poetry in my life. Till the day Jesus took my hand and touched my soul.....I invite your response. However most poems are not about me! Very few are. But the feed-back good, bad or indifferent is always desired. Not meant to offend, but I write about many things in many a guise. Of life, death, lost, found, saved, backsliders, new comers, repenting souls, doubting hearts, heathens, Christians, fire, water, Satan's daughter, wallowing in sin, saved, made sound walking in Light, graceful righteous. Suffering, ecstatic, bored, excited, sad, delighted, Sick, well, lame, able, living, dying, etc. etc. etc. Writing about anything, everything and everyone as the spirit leads. All meant to reveal, waken, revive, encourage, shame, help. Gladden, pick up, exalt, portrait, liberate. Again over 99% of my work is not about me. Although at times I write as though I were or am. Speaking e.g. in the first person. This is quite common even in the bible itself. Prophets speak of themselves, then God speaks, again the prophet, then God......Quite often it's difficult to distinguish whom it is that at any given time is speaking or narrating.
