And To Keep This Peace, You Do Nothing


who does not want harmony?
it is an equation of beauty
and peace, and what is most important is peace, I know.
who wants to chill upon a rainless day?
who wants to be left alone crying in the streets of nowhere?
nobody, nobody.

But why are they still there? they who cry in the streets,
they who are discordant and senseless?
They who run and run, but do not know really where to go, when to stop?

you are at peace, and you do not mind why they are at war?

you do not mind why this world is shaken? why the cracks have
widened? why the chasm is deeper?

you are at peace. You know where to go. You know the reason why.

Just be there. Do not move. You are God.
And to keep this Peace, You do nothing.

You will say: It is Destiny. It is Written. And it shall be Done.
It shall be fulfilled.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
