Peace is like a distant light,
forever a flame, yet so far it cannot be felt,
and like a star that glimmers in the night sky,
we can live in hope, revere its light,
but time has sadly passed us by.
No flow of circumstance can eradicate
the dark wills of men,
no truth attest the sad outcome that awaits,
like children we must feel the weight of loss,
before we can truly hold the freedom of love’s path.
And so the point of no return
swirls about us like flies over carrion,
an immanent catastrophe that will mark change,
because we will not accept it otherwise,
and who will survive our most poignant failure?
Love is the only path to freedom,
all else serves some only at the expense of others,
and the world now exists in a state of slavery on many levels,
benefiting but the few, and orchestrated to do so,
under a distraction of war and vilification.
Until that circumstance is broken,
until the world is broken and we face complete change,
then and only then will love rise
and a new consciousness pervade earth,
a new spirituality that will transform all that has been.
