Eugi’s Weekly Prompt – Peace

Eugenia is the host of Eugi’s Weekly Prompt

As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” – Henry David Thoreau

Your Weekly Prompt – Peace – September 30, 2

➰➰➰

We pay homage to the dove of peace

We weave accolades of praise and courage

Yet the real peace is as elusive as ever

Only lip service and hollow words are offered

It seems we lack the will to bring about real peace

World is still at loggerheads with itself everywhere

People are against people, even their own kind

When will it get through our thick heads that

There cannot be peace within if there’s no peace around us

➰➰➰

  1. A hymn we used to sing at church: “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”. It can be disheartening and discouraging to read the many news stories focused on humanity’s penchant for war and meanness of every kind. It is true, there are so many atrocities happening even as I type this all over the world. Perhaps there is nothing we can do about that but I do believe in the power of small deeds multiplied by individual efforts and flowing into the the masses can and will make a positive difference. It takes strength and courage though and sometimes that can be quite challenging. Chin up, my friend, as the saying goes, it can’t rain all the time.

    1. *Uplifting comment. I agree that the power of small, thoughtful and kind deed cannot be denied. And indeed, the peace should start with us first and foremost. Thanks

  2. A beautiful poem, Sadje. I was just reflecting upon some of the violence that is happening around this country, between neighbors, about mask mandates. There are days where peace seems so far away for so many people. Sad. 😔 Yet, we can still take our actions to bring more awareness, light, and love into the world, which your work always does. Happy weekend! ☺️
