Blog For Peace Day



                                                       
they steal our dreams as we sleep
auction them off to the highest bidder
leaving us with nothing, hopeless

they steal our beliefs as we sleep
pass them out like Halloween candy
leaving us empty, without sustenance

they steal our faith as we sleep
in the system, in our futures
 auction it off to the highest bidder

they steal our vision as we sleep
for world peace, global harmony
 auction it off to the highest bidder

  4. It is hard to keep hope alive when all indications are that the world is in a hopeless state of misrule and bad conduct.

  5. The world is all noise and turmoil...We sleep with our eyes open while the thief comes to steal. Such a creative take on peace.
