Cease-fire
By Belinda Behne
Listen to Podcast

 

When will the day come

when darkened skies

filled with smoke

from endless bombings

become clear again?

 

When will the day come

when the world hears the screams

of innocents buried in the rubble

crying for Peace

crying for bread and water and bandages?

 

When will the day come

when will we realise

they are all our children

our brothers and sisters and cousins

our wives and husbands and parents?

 

When will the day come

when we understand true power

is not dominance but respect

and learning to trust

that if we tend this earth together

there will be enough?

 

When will the day come

when we stop our tribal chest pounding

and open our eyes and hearts

to truly loving our neighbors

as ourselves?

 

When will we truly love ourselves

enough to stop hating?

 

Today could be When
