Peace within

Peace Within

Peace Within by Sean M Kelly

When all around you is falling down
To remember their dead
they stain blood on the ground
there’s hate in their eyes
You’ve got to realise
there’s a part of you that needs
to find love too …

When children are used
in a game of hate
sowing seeds
for more violence to create
A father holds his child
in his arms so tight
as the rain from hell falls
from vengeful birds in flight

Peace within me
Peace within you
Let the light of your peace shine through

When toys turn to bombs
which kill and mame
And all you see is difference
And never the same
A child cries loud over his fathers grave
And wonders why he had to be so brave?
Hear it, feel it, deep inside
Your heartfelt wisdom and
let it be your guide.

Peace within me
Peace within you
Let the light of your peace shine through

When all around you are ready to blame
never knowing that they fan the flame
Be not vengeful, be not cruel
History tells us it’s the way of a fool
Seek out peace deep inside
Feel the Love and
let it be your guide

Peace within me
Peace within you
Let the light of your peace shine through

“Whether your dreams come true or not, you can still have a great time…”. — Excellent statement, Sean. I’ve quoted that in my Pilgrimage journal.

Thank you!
Cleo

ps: nice poem, too

Thanks Cleo, yes its important to remember happiness and enjoyment is not conditional, we have it as a given. Observe children at play – they have a brilliant time totally absorbed in their true nature of “bliss”! The trick is to go there often ourselves.

Enjoy
Sean
