Ah, Peace~by Lilian Dipasupil Kunimasa



Ah, Peace

Ah, Peace …
How elusive is your name
When man, heart wished not to tame
His arrogance, you bring to shame
His spirit, you maimed lame
Extinguished his fickle flame

Ah, Peace …
Why do you hide your face
When man, compassion cannot trace
His destined path of fate, you erase
Blood and tears, you lace
Ousted him from human race

Ah, Peace …
Are you but timeless dream
When man, of nightmares scream
His desires flow from endless stream
Unity unfounded in extreme
In wide desert, a mirage gleam

When will violence cease
When will anger stop to tease
When will understanding unleash
When will we peace embrace?
