A Quest for Peace

Reciting a fable as her teary eyes wept
Breathing were characters as people lay dead
To child who earned his dreams as he slept
Cradled on her lap, life is better in his head
In it there is shade and in it the sorrows fled
Every flip of page to an unknown turned
Without a word a world worth was said
Without a word, many silences returned
There is nothing to say, no one left to hear
The sounds of destruction so loud
Fear falls silent, and silent falls a tear
The Sun falters to cross this ominous cloud
In search of peace, they ardently went to war
While peace takes its last breath from shores afar.
