War - in thought and action
War - in word and deed,
But, can we drop our weapons
So we can be free.

War - in striving, fame
War - in grasping, greed,
But, can we drop contending
So we can be free.



War - in competition
War - in scorn, contempt,
But, can we love each other
And thereby safely rest.

War - in discontentment
Wanting for ourselves,
But, can we think of others
For our country's health.



War - in disagreement
War - from different ways,
Can we celebrate the difference
In things we do and say.

But, through history nothing healed
But by our Saviour's love,
Wounds stay deeply festered
Until we look above.



God alone can change a heart
Make it soft and sweet,
God alone can melt down weapons
So we can be free.

Poetry from The Heart

Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
since as members of one body
you were called to peace-
and be thankful.
~Colossians 3:15

He will judge between the nations
and will settle disputes for many peoples.
They will beat their swords into ploughshares
and their spears into pruning hooks.
Nation will not take up sword against nation,
nor will they train for war anymore.
~Isaiah 2:4
