MY EYES AWAIT TO BEHOLD

My eyes await to behold the star
that in its halo carries the banner of peace.

I have felt it fly full of freedom

There is no point on earth where its hopeful acclaim has
not been heard saying…
peace!

It has a special glow and desire to love

Maybe tomorrow it will lead us to the point
where its truth can be found,
Because without it, without it there is nothing else.

Let us be relentless with this clamor!
Change guns and wars for poems
and words that give warmth and prayer

Author’s Note: Since today (September 21) is World Peace Day, I am sending you a poem that I have written, to share with you, hoping that peace will finally dawn on all of us from now on and forever.
