A Peace Nonkillingly Sustained
POETRY FORMAT, 20 Aug 2012
Many types of peace Humankind may see
Many ways of promoting peace there may be
One specific realization of Peace that all human beings could share
Would be a peace in which in nonkilling decisions all governments dare
For a globally sustainable peace to be more than highly desirable today
A universal committment to a peace nonkillingly sustained will pave the way
