Late Earth Day Poem

A War for Peace

Battle after battle…

What is peace but war postponed?
What is the battlefield
But another home
Of a friend, whom I’ve never met.

 And while the battle may be over
 The war is never won
 Each and every encounter
 Leaves a scar upon the face of the earth.

This face looks upon her children with tears
And wonders how many years she must endure
How long can we destroy, before we destroy ourselves?
It’s only a matter of time…

And time will tell his story of mother earth
For ages and ages on end
It began with a battle
and so did it end.
