Poetry Competitions: Peace
by Lucia Sibih Zenabo
I'm concern about the world's state,
where everybody now enjoys violence and hate.
In the middle of the jungle you find a lonely tree with no leaves ,
It bears fruits only big enchilada sees
On it all inhabitants depend,
but an illness attacks it , no one can defend.
when wise men come up with suggestions on how to bring cure,
the tree's immunity becomes weak and can't endure.
I'm talking about the nation
Fighting has become our profession .
what else can be done,
when all hope of tranquility is gone .
Peace, this little word has a lot to do.
It begins in the mindset and then goes down to the heart too.
Peace , sweet peace , I wish you would be the only violence
that will do away with every insolence
I wish you can sing on hatred's harmony,
and sting conflict like a bee without honey.
Restore the health of the lonely tree in the jungle,
and may your opponents be made to tumble .
May your reign begin again
and let justice and unity be our portion again.
