Peace is

Peace is

One step against the line.

One shout above the silence.

A hand reaching out

Another reaching back.

A broken thing fixed

An empty thing filled.

Peace is

Standing alone

Awaiting others.

A single singer

Joined in chorus.

An arm linked

Side to side.

Hands clasped …


Pain spilled to action


A bruised soul healing

A torn voice victorious.


The day we learn

Not to fear.

Peace is

A heart brave enough to love.
