PEACE: An Ultimate Planetary Need

POETRY FORMAT, 20 Nov 2017

Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

Humanity needs Peace!
Who feeds Peace?
Who is fed Peace? By whom?
How? Where? When? Why?

What feeds Peace to Humanity?
Dignity, Human Rights, Nonviolence, Nonkilling, Spirituality?
How? Where? When? Why?

Locally and globally who heeds Peace?
How? Where? When? Why?

To meet ultimate planetary needs
Let´s plant Global Peace Literacy seeds.

All of Humanity being educated for Peace?
A sustainable, cooperative action never to cease!

Imaginative Peace let´s also feed.
About Peace, in all languages, Humankind should read.

A global need . . .
A global seed . . .
A global feed.

GLOBAL PEACE let`s heed,
to every heart, LOVE OF PEACE let’s feed.
