We need peace after so many years of war.

--

We are all just children breathing.
Our hands are open.
We rest in the quiet rhythm of the earth,
The quiet rhythm of being human.
We need peace after so many years of war.
Our hearts are so tired.
If only presidents and kings could meet in their dreams.
If only the soldiers would set aside their weapons
And hold each other close through the long nights,
Each one feeling the chest of the other
As it rises and falls.
There is no war in us when we sleep.
