    Peace is an easy path to tread
    Peace is where our fears are mislaid
    Peace is beginning to restore
    peace for each man and women and children
    peace for the troubled streets gone wild
    peace is the old and young
    peace in the end will overcome
    peace builds trust into a lifestyle
    peace is a friendly open hand
    peace is a place to understand
    peace is a legacy to leave
    peace is when we do not have to grieve
    peace is why we negotiate
    peace is an end to all the hate
    peace for all the victims of war.

    War – Again and Ongoing
    by Brian Wrixon

    War – again and ongoing, man always at war
    Every dark conflict of ours creates a deeper night
    Eyes to gun-sights and fingers to triggers
    A distant rumble and the ground moves again
    Doom breathes its way past the fallen dead
    Those who deliver raining death from above
    Sweep past overhead in the night sky
    The horizon is bright as their payload explodes
    And the cries of the collaterally damaged
    Are heard moaning on a passing breeze
    Will we never learn?
    Why cannot our century behave?
    Surely the Creator must rail against what we do
