Living As World Peace

By Aliza Gerritt

separate from our own souls,
hiding in our deep dark holes,
fighting for world peace.

ignoring our country’s history,
forgetting about ancestry,
no praise, no thanks to the Great Mystery.

distracted by wealth and property,
our people live in poverty,
we are our own, atrocity.

busy dining on our own kind,
consuming foods that cloud our mind,
assuring we won’t seek to find,
the oneness of it all.

too much confusion,
navigating the illusions,
all these institutions,
perpetuating mass delusions.

separate from our own souls,
hiding in our deep dark holes,
fighting for world peace.

find the guide inside,
no peace within is suicide.
we must begin to realize,
we are contributing to worldwide genocide.

we are so powerful; we decide,
whether our Earth will live or die,
we’ve got to keep, the LOVE alive!

did we even fathom,
our planet, a phantom,
so consumed with expansion,
forgot about atoms.

well, particles of matter,
could we be sadder,
children forgetting about laughter,
while wallets get fatter-

and still, we cry in vain,
look for others to blame,
continue searching outside;
someone or something, to vilify.

separate from our own souls,
hiding in our deep dark holes,
fighting for world peace.

each of us needs to do our part,
the only essential place to start,
with open mind and open heart,
we can be an end, to worlds apart.

united with our own souls,
no longer hiding in our deep dark holes,
living as world peace.

    YES, YES, YES—open minds and open hearts–how wonderful the world would be.
    But, there are so many who have yet to realize each of us are just a miniscule thread of
    a larger tapestry of life—humans, animals, plants all must be in harmony to make that
    tapestry one of love–knowledge brings peace–please keep the knowledge coming!
