The cry rings out — Peace. Peace.
Behold;……. for peace,
I had great bitterness:
Blood on the hands;
Gall on the tongue;
Unforgiveness in the heart.
For the way of peace;
I did not Know …….
Could not know.

Mischief came upon mischief;
Suddenly, in the thick of shadows:
A light ……. Overwhelming Light!
I was without strength — speechless.
Hubris; perfidy exposed ……. slain.
Inchoation ……. efflorescense ……. metempsychosis:
Promise pierced my soul.
A fresh mind; a pure heart; a new life;
Suddenly Awake! ……. Astounded!

The Spirit is Life…and Peace,
Flowing from Him; through the Body;
Unto the world ……. Unrecognized;
Unrequited …….It must be so;
“For the fruit of righteousness
Is sown in the peace of them that make peace.
And He who formed the Light
And created the darkness.
Will keep that soul in peace.
