A Silent Yearning

I long for,
Absence from war,
Absence from hate,
That both joy and love,
Shall rule all lands.

I long for us to all unite,
Unite as one,
As one soul community.

I write for peace,
A peace within,
Within us.
I write for love,
Love amongst and within us all.

I long for all peoples,
To see crystal clear,
A great leap forward,
With the strongest, highest morals,
Striving all for peace,
Rejecting anything less,
How often I wish,
How often I pray.

A quality of tenderness,
A quality of peace,
A quality of love,
A quality of us,
Us to be,
To be,

This vision I see,

This vision of no division,
This vision is possible:
Peace is possible.

And yet still I silently pray.
