Peacemaking peacekeeping noble art

Beginning inside where to start

First place look inside your heart

What motivation you play what part


Does your action reflect an inner smile

Does engagement transcend ego’s wile

What lies within inner reserves

Compel action when you lose nerve


Humanity pulls you to this end

Not knowing what’s around the bend

Compassion broadens wings of dove

Sweet nectar the purity of your love


Quietly in touch with inner source

Stop your chatter let go of remorse

Conjure a vision peace that abides

No certainty about your traveling rides


Let faith emerge to quiet fear

Trust god will guide help get you there

Path straight and narrow steps steep and true

Stay mindful honor counsel it is not about you


Be a selfless presence voice guiding the way

Your instrument merges with sense of play

Silent at center chaos all around

Mystery birthing peace from common ground


Have you embraced the truth that your external is a mirror of the internal?

What is unsettled in your world such that you crave more peace?
