My Poem of the Day (12/06/13)

12/06/2013 — 4 Comments


There was a man I knew

Not in person

But by his


drive and


I can only hope

to be like every part of him

He fought for world peace

He truly believed we all belonged

here together in the same place

with the same rights

with the same means

He sacrificed everything

in a sense his whole life

He wouldn’t have done things differently

He wouldn’t have known how

Peace is what he wanted

Peace is what I hope we can all find

The fight is pointless

In the end there are never winners

For once the battle is over

You stand alone

Most often without those you love

So peace is the answer

Why don’t you just get along

Peace – dedicated to the memory of Nelson Mandela



Peace was written by
