Poem: Peace


By: Joi Maree Flowers

We smile when a child is born
But cry when a loved one dies

But why

When we are to do
Just the opposite

Human nature I guess

This world is so corrupted
That the only peace lies is Heaven

The newborn child doesn't know this yet but will learn in time that Earth is

Plagued with dysfunction
Injected with hate

Only the peacefulness of death from it can we escape

But of death we are also afraid
As we don't want to leave behind those whom we love

On the battlefields of earth

But our calling cannot be delayed
As we must answer in that second

When heaven comes knocking and calls our name

To be sent to the joy of awaited peace
Though that means leaving loved ones behind to fight

As it is not yet their time to be called

To paradise
To feel the bliss of home

Though one day we all will again

Join one another
Where we won't ever again say goodbye

And never again leave one behind
