Reflections on BLACK OUT.."Peace...No War!!"

Thank You dear Maurizio Bignone... touched I am and so...

Reflections on BLACK OUT...

the mounting loss
the heartache and tears

what be this devastation that prevails
why these imposing fears and travails
are we not to go beyond the illusion of gain
are we not to perceive war's depth of pain
are we not to hold reverence for each gift of life
are we not to create a world beyond bitterness and strife
what calling plea shall we answer this very day
within our hearts and visions PEACE PEACE be The Way
when all refuse to destroy their fellow man
PEACE PEACE will be the prevailing command.
