What Be This Birth

what be this birth
a value measured
a purpose defined
a potential anticipated
a passion known
what be this birth
a plan determined
an action set
a vision fulfilled
a quest triumphant
what be this birth
the birth of PEACE
the birth of PRAISE.

  1. the birth of peace...I've prayed all my life for peace in the world before I die! It saddens me to think that I was born during a war and there has been one war (or police action) after another since then. I look forward to this birth of peace...born out of the wrenching pain of war

  2. Theanne, I too, born during time of war, and as a young girl saw my father and uncles go off to 'fight for freedom.' It felt noble until it became clear that there were other motivating agendas.

    Let PEACE be with us.

    Much love,
    Rose Marie

  3. ROSEMARIE - yes, the birth of peace, it is born my friend, in your heart, in mine, in others too. Peace is being born - one loving heart at a time and now must thrive and generate.
    Love to you

  4. Gail,

    YES, I feel the peace within that is sought for the World...

    Much love to you and yours,
    Rose Marie
