Invest In Peace Sow Paradise On Earth - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

I believe in peace and have been persecuted
for a love of peace belief for many years
by people brain washed into thinking war is
right war is good, and peace is weak peace

is wrong, because they believe in media lies
truth manipulations, telling them war is justified
righteous needed to protect their country from third
world people unlucky enough to live on land

full of valuable desired coveted resources;
ignorant people will believe politician liars,
spinning hate invasion agendas, because
spin doctors write speeches, telling citizens

blind patriotic, that their children freedom, is
endangered by freedom fighters fighting to protect
their invaded land, individuals oppressed destroyed
by alien supreme high-tech invasion war machines;

wake up people peace is beautiful, sharing water air life land;
is beautiful, sowing peace prosperity health tolerance
education is beautiful, turning swords into plough shares
tilling land growing food, spending trillions spent on wars

on peace people medicine technology buildings
to improve the lives of all people on this earth,
sharing this earth is sowing seeds of sacred paradise
realized on this our earth in our own generation;

    I Especially Love Peace

    blessings of peace
    prosperity peace
    bestowed upon all people
    bestowed upon all nations civilizations
    inhabiting planet earth
    blessings of peace to all human beings
    this should be the birth right of all people
    from all cultures on this earth

    this should be the inherent legacy
    we leave to all our children who follow us
    eventually humanity will live in peace

    eventually humanity will live in enlightenment
    or humanity will perish humanity will not survive
    peace happiness prosperity is our true birthright

    I Have Written Many Recipes For Peace

    the love of peace
    the promotion of peace
    is a theme ever close to my heart,
    the rejection of terror wars is written in my heart;
    I have written many recipes for peace
    come copy the recipes share menu peace
    the lovers of peace the victims of war hurt,
    we dream of a time when people will get the chance;

    to live in peace
    when beauty human life
    is valued more than war profits,
    thanks for believing in peace
    thanks for cooking recipes for peace
    thanks for burning menus serving up wars;

    Peace is what we all sort out in this world, a world without peace is like a bowl with boiling oil. Congrats for the poem of the day. (Report) Reply

    Peace is what we all need. However, capital invested on technology, for development, has forced the world to chaos. It continues in to the future as well. Can this dilemma be stopped by any means? Yet, good hearted people like you, in what ever capacity need to raise a voice for peace. You did that. Congratulations for being the poem of the day.

    the love of peace, the promotion of peace, has been a theme I have pursued for many years, I remember being ridiculed for writing 'Recipe For Peace' back in July 1991, so thank you for supporting a theme so close to my heart
