“Peace is not something you wish for, it something you make, something you do, something you are, something you give away.”–Robert Fulghum

In an effort to actively do something to create more peace in the world in 2013, I am dedicating a number of my posts specifically to peace. I invite you to join me. We can call ourselves “Bloggers for Peace.” Everyone is invited to join. The requirements are simple and flexible.

  • Devote at least one post a month to/for/about peace. If you write poems or fiction, write a piece about peace. If you take photos, post a photo or gallery that reflects, symbolizes, defines, or creates peace. If you write rants, rant at something that disturbs the peace or rant about something that promotes peace. If you are into zen, post a blank white page. If you are an artist…you get the idea. Feel free to…

Still standing

This deep dark pain the tears fall like rain

Every drop of blood flowing in my veins

Forever broken like  broken glass in a window pane

Replaced yet never the same

Please take away the pain


Your mercy and your grace

Can take away the bitter taste

I ask on bended knee your mercy and grace

As tears roll down my human face


Chasms of hurt deep and wide

Mountains of destruction foolish pride

Now not a friend nor earthly bride

Empty and hollow deep dark pain inside


Your mercy and your grace

Can take away the bitter taste

I ask on bended knee your mercy and grace

As tears roll down my human face


Laying broken on the ground

Flowers blooming all around

Love grace and mercy found

Me standing on a world that’s round

   I hesitate to share this yet I am moved to share and express myself. The holidays are my favorite part of the year and as my Holidays have so radically changed in the last few years it has been a gift to enjoy them on a much deeper level within myself. The last two years I have spent pretty much in solitude, my best friend having left me both of those and my children far away. I do have family close by and spent Christmas Eve with them,  we are all outspoken and sometimes lack tact I left before the family drama.

I share my poem and a little of my story after Christmas and before New Years as a way of sharing the path of one mans journey and depth and love of himself to be true to his being. It has been a gift especially this year that I have found me and learned to truly love and embrace who I am. That gift is of the divine for with no inner love and faith my prayers and sacrifice I would be a truly lonely and bitter man.

My lessons learned have begun to bring true detachment and true love to my being and given the gift of depth to my love for the divine and all of its creation. It is my true hope that as we move into the next year we may begin today to share the love we all have within.

I thank you for allowing me to share some thoughts and feelings in an artful form. I hope we can all share a smile share some love and make our world a better place for all we share it with. Please share a smile share your love and be the change positive. Thank you again!
