One syllable

entry picture

It is a rose in front of God,

freewill exercised with consideration,

the voice of serenity,

hope invoked by the flawless faith that loves gives us

 

The serene vision of a brotherhood that has no color,

language, borderline, age, nationality or creed

 

The unexpected voice of life that understands the sharp cry where sorrow sleeps;

the coffin nails, the falsehood,

the inequity and evil that shakes the world

 

Through darkness, peace makes its way to Creation

providing its offerings...

Oasis of harmony!

 

It is the fraternal embrace of the universe;

the acceptance of the diversity of our brothers

along with their creeds, colors and ideals

 

Aware of what I say; fanaticism, hatred, revenge,

leave only ashes, drag us to intimidation,

to wars, pain, tears; perhaps could also find us naked

before the frightening possibility of being victims

because of the color of our skin, because of our beliefs

or for thinking differently

 

Much more simple is to give love and to accept it with joy,

freedom, tolerance; gestures of solidarity and compassion

which leads us to proclaim a simple word,

that has just one syllable,

peace…
