As Peaceful Warriors


On any average day we see
Shocking visions of violence
Carried out within the World
Human against human, against nature,
Against Earth
            That startles the serenity
Of the calm mind
            To bring flames of anguish
Searing deep to permeate
The stillness of one’s Soul

As peaceful Warriors
We must stand strong
Fierce in solid rigidity
To protect, to preserve, to shield
The innocent, the defenseless, the fragile.

As Peaceful Warriors
We must expose the intentions
Of those hell bent and driven
On greed, on power, on control
Those who delight in the destruction,
The suffering, the annihilation
Of the natural balance
The splendor, the blessings
Of all things living

As Peaceful Warriors
We must stand together as one
To defeat with civil defiance
The unconscionable violence
Committed against our Universe
