Calling for PeacePage 1 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
your peaceful eyes make me feel better
your peaceful heart makes me love better
your peaceful mind make me understand better
your peaceful body makes me relax better
your peaceful spirit makes my spirit peaceful

but if you turn to anger, so will I
for I am not good at not taking effect
as much as I should be
I've been lazy with keeping me
from falling under the bus of subjectivity
letting all my thoughts and feelings
take hold of me and put me through hell
some moments quite obviously

and in those times I forget to breathe
to stop and let my breath calm me

so I will keep trying to be
more like ....well.....me....actually
for my peaceful eyes make me see better
my peaceful heart makes me love better
my peaceful mind makes me understand better
my peaceful body makes me relax better
my peaceful spirit makes me be peacefully

you.....me.....really it makes no difference, actually
for we are one

thank you...i'm glad the message came through....
please add any words, thoughts, prayers of your own!


this next one is not mine, but from one of my favorite albums these days -
a double album that came out in 2004 called 'Crosby * Nash'.....the
label is Sanctuary, but I have always thought that should have been
the album's title :).....many songs from it could be on this thread,
but this one especially stands out for me today.....written by Graham Nash.....


"Half Your Angels"

'Somewhere in Heaven wings are taking flight
Flying over a worldly weight of hatred
Hanging over a building in the rain

You got to Heaven blown across the sky
Crying out for the angels to help you
To rise up out of the ashes and the flames

Send me half your angels
We're running out of time
Send me half your angels
I'll send you half of mine
Hope they get there in time

And far below your Heaven hearts are wondering why
Why would anyone hurt God's children?
How could anyone harm them at all?

Send me half your angels
We're running out of time
Send me half your angels
I'll send you half of mine
Hope they get there in time

And while you're in Heaven sleeping on the wind
Ask your heart to forgive this evil
Ask your soul to forgive us all

Send me half your angels
We're running out of time
Send me half your angels
I'll send you half of mine

Send me half your angels
We're running out of time
Send me half your angels
I'll send you half of mine
Hope they got there in time

Half your angels, goodbye'

And a peace fell over the land,
guided by the hand
of love,
the seat of power,
and evil became homeless.

and Nature smiled!

The spirit winds stayed
as the flutes played,
echoing far and wide,
and the sun smiled
just like a child,
as love becomes a bride.

editing to add, as have just found your words, grizz.....
thank you so much for bringing your truth here....you are so right......
everything lives in love, thrives in love, grows in love, is love
(or the witholding of love).....peace, real peace is love...
and real love is peace (i think)....

and manny, thank you for putting such wonderful and beautiful words here....
so very moving.....you know, I wasn't sure on the title whether to add
'With Love' .....'calling for peace with love'.....and I kept changing it until
I decided to keep it simple.....but it seems we're all calling for peace with love.....
I believe it is the only way......and so, on that note, I wish to post another of
my very favorite songs by perhaps my very favorite artist.....
posted early this morning on the lyrics thread also, so sorry if it's redundant...
i can't get enough of it! :)


Eric Clapton ......."Let it Grow"

'Standing at the crossroads, trying to read the signs
To tell me which way I should go to find the answer,
And all the time I know,
Plant your love and let it grow.

Let it grow, let it grow,
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow,
Love is lovely, let it grow.

Looking for a reason to check out of my mind,
Trying hard to get a friend that I can count on,
But there's nothing left to show,
Plant your love and let it grow.

Let it grow, let it grow,
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow,
Love is lovely, let it grow.

Time is getting shorter and there's much for you to do.
Only ask and you will get what you are needing,
The rest is up to you.
Plant your love and let it grow.

Let it grow, let it grow,
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow,
Love is lovely, let it grow.

Let it grow, let it grow,
Let it blossom, let it flow.
In the sun, the rain, the snow,
Love is lovely, let it grow.'

One of my favs by Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young!
from the Deja Vu album.

Teach Your Children
by Graham Nash

You, who are on the road
Must have a code
That you can live by.
And so, become yourself
Because the past
Is just a goodbye.

Teach, your children well
Their father's hell
Did slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick's
The one you'll know by.
Don't you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would die
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you.

And you (Can you hear and)
Of tender years (Do you care and)
Can't know the fears (Can you see we)
That your elders grew by (Must be free to)
And so please help (Teach your children)
Them with your youth (You believe and)
They seek the truth (Make a world that)
Before they can die (We can live in)

Teach your parents well
Their children’s hell
Will slowly go by
And feed them on your dreams
The one they pick's
The one you’ll know by.

Don’t you ever ask them why
If they told you, you would cry
So just look at them and sigh
And know they love you.

you know who.........................lol

Chimes Of Freedom
Far between sundown's finish an' midnight's broken toll
We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
An' for each an' ev'ry underdog soldier in the night
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

In the city's melted furnace, unexpectedly we watched
With faces hidden while the walls were tightening
As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowin' rain
Dissolved into the bells of the lightning
Tolling for the rebel, tolling for the rake
Tolling for the luckless, the abandoned an' forsaked
Tolling for the outcast, burnin' constantly at stake
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild ripping hail
The sky cracked its poems in naked wonder
That the clinging of the church bells blew far into the breeze
Leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
Striking for the gentle, striking for the kind
Striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
An' the unpawned painter behind beyond his rightful time
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Through the wild cathedral evening the rain unraveled tales
For the disrobed faceless forms of no position
Tolling for the tongues with no place to bring their thoughts
All down in taken-for-granted situations
Tolling for the deaf an' blind, tolling for the mute
Tolling for the mistreated, mateless mother, the mistitled prostitute
For the misdemeanor outlaw, chased an' cheated by pursuit
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Even though a cloud's white curtain in a far-off corner flashed
An' the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
Electric light still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
Tolling for the searching ones, on their speechless, seeking trail
For the lonesome-hearted lovers with too personal a tale
An' for each unharmful, gentle soul misplaced inside a jail
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

Starry-eyed an' laughing as I recall when we were caught
Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
As we listened one last time an' we watched with one last look
Spellbound an' swallowed 'til the tolling ended
Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an' worse
An' for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
An' we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

ahhhh.....'Teach your Children', indeed.....and...Dylan.....always on this mission....
thank you Manny and Grizz for posting those here....
Domut ....yes, it's been a long while since peace really pervailed on an individual level
right through to the planetary level here.....yet the universe seems to be pretty peaceful 'out there'.....
so perhaps the lack of peace is man-made, which means it can be changed....
I wrote this last September, realized it fits here......


make a new start
it really is time
we've neglected
our bodies and hearts
and focused all on our minds
we've used each other
and all but used up
the gifts from our mother....
we just call her dirt

it really is time to make a new start
to stop and listen to the beat of our heart
to not just run to and fro
but to pay attention as we go
it isn't just our hearts we neglect
but the heart of our mother....
this beloved planet

it's time to use our hearts and minds
to break down these self imposed walls
to help each other... for some
really will not know how to fall
they've been up in their towers
surveying all and ordering from up there
but it's meant they don't know
what goes on down here

it's time to shake hands
and give hugs to each other
to stand on the earth
and feel where our mother
needs to be healed
for she reflects our faults
our cruelty and our insults
for we've treated her like we do each other

and weren't we told long ago
we need to honor our father and mother?
weren't we told long ago
we need to honor and respect each other?
weren't we told long ago
there is no separation or division
that our fathers and mothers
and friends and all others
are one and the same?

yes.... it really is time
to put an end to this game
to know why we're here
because we've forgotten
in all the insanity.....
we've forgotten our mission
and it's so far from our minds
it's time to remember
we're part of humanity

all one....one heart....one mind....one body....one soul
connected indescribably with each other and the whole
as long as we live thinking of me, mine, you and yours
we're destined to keep divided and so never see
how we can be the loving and peaceful
souls we were put here to be

Dire Straits - "Brothers in Arms" ....written and sung so beautifully and truthfully by Mark Knopfler

'These mistcovered mountains
Are a home now for me
But my home are the lowlands
And always will be
Some day you'll return to
Your valleys and your farms
And you'll no longer burn
To be brothers in arms

Through the fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
I've watched all your suffering
As the battles raged higher
And though they did not hurt me so bad
In the fear and alarm
You did not desert me
My brothers in arms

There's so many different worlds
So many different suns
And we have just one world
But we live in different ones

No the sun's gone to hell
And the moon's riding high
Let me bid you farewell
Every man has to die
But it's written in the starlight
And every line on your palm
We're fools to make war
On our brothers in arms '

EDWIN STARR.........................................................WAR
Posted: 3/17/2009 11:59:34 PM
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again, y'all

War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

Ohhh, war, I despise
Because it means destruction
Of innocent lives

War means tears
To thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

I said, war, huh
Good God, y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing
But a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Ooooh, war
It's an enemy to all mankind
The point of war blows my mind...............................
War has caused unrest
Within the younger generation
Induction then destruction
Who wants to die
Aaaaah, war-huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it, say it, say it
War, huh
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Uh-huh
War, huh, yeah
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again y'all
War, huh, good God
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, it's got one friend
That's the undertaker
Ooooh, war, has shattered
Many a young mans dreams
Made him disabled, bitter and mean
Life is much to short and precious
To spend fighting wars these days
War can't give life
It can only take it away

Ooooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Say it again

War, whoa, Lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing
Listen to me

War, it ain't nothing but a heartbreaker
War, friend only to the undertaker
Peace, love and understanding
Tell me, is there no place for them today
They say we must fight to keep our freedom
But Lord knows there's got to be a better way

Ooooooh, war, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
You tell me
Say it, say it, say it, say it

War, huh
Good God y'all
What is it good for
Stand up and shout it
Nothing

Ahhhh...that's^^^^ one of my daughter's favorite songs....from the movie "Billy Jack!"

In the mornings subtle wake,
of evergreens and glass blue lake,
while silent ripples whisper flow,
from earth of spring begins to grow,

a newness rich with tears of dew,
as warblers sing, as if on cue,
mists of cotton, in linen white,
quickly fade with sun's first light.

Listening
to the
stillness grow,
thunder distant
rumbles low,
raindrops fall
from heavy skies,
wiping sleep
from mornings eyes,
a passing burst
as sun breaks through,
a freshness filled
with life anew.

Calling For Peace..............................
Posted: 3/18/2009 8:08:06 AM
well i've been debating if i should post this here.......but it does seem to fit if we are talking of peace.....................................


have you recently looked at the time
8:46 am wed march 18th 2009.............date changed to protect the innocent.....<-;
please hear me as i tell the tale of i
i remenber steel wheeled skateboards.......man could you fly
or sitting in 3rd grade class over the intercom was billed
that president John F. Kenndy had just been killed
in viet nam so many died
on television thier mothers cried
the beatles came and changed our mind
the cleavers were now hard to find
the summer of love showed signs of what could be
if we'd just give it a chance and wait and see
they screamed for peace across the land
innocent children killed by the goverments hand
with our new leaders set in gunmens path
King and Kennedy caught in evils wrath
in L.A. a madman name manson injected a world ending gloom
while american men walked on the moon
but still the war continued and lives were lost
reminds me of this day and age,another war with such a cost
this time we were attacked on our own land
so when does it change to another viet nam and not just us..... making our stand???

yabbadoo - powerful song, thank you for posting it.
grizz - again, such a powerful song and your post was perfect.
and manny - your poems are very moving here -thank you.
all and everything to do with peace - to call in /down/up/over for peace
is my prayer here.....
and so, as you mentioned the Beatles, of course I could not have a thread
on this subject without this song and this man....


John Lennon - "Imagine"

'Imagine there's no Heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world

You may say that I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one'

Last Night I had the Strangest Dream ......Simon and Garfunkel

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war
I dreamed I saw a mighty room
The room was filled with men
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again

And when the papers all were signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful prayers were prayed
And the people in the streets below
Were dancing round and round
And guns and swords and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground

Last night I had the strangest dream
I ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war

grizz, lipotufu, rosie....thank you, each of you.....so much truth in your words....rosie, absolutely, peace begins with each of us....
and always, to John Lennon - for his vision and ability to get his vision across to so many.....deep gratitude.....
soon after Hurricane Katrina, my local community was invited to write about it,
so I sat down to see if I could, and it ended up being a prayer for peace....



'It May Be Too Late to End Hate'


the devastating hurricane
called katrina
swept through new orleans
killing so many of our citizens
it's almost too much to imagine

the shock, the horror,
the fear was so clear
in the eyes of the masses
who lost their lives and everything there,
never to rise from the ashes

we live in a place where one can't escape
the forces of nature's wrath,
for we are helpless to stop its passage
when our homes are in its path

the children all scream
as they see parents and dreams
disappear in the wind and the rain
and we all know, can't help but feel great sorrow,
for life will never be the same again

what have we done to deserve such guns
from the gods who have shown us of late?
their anger overflows
into our lives it goes,
and there it's decided, our fate

the answer's so clear
I will yell in your ear,
not whisper as so many do,
we are here I swear
to love all that's here
if you can't, I feel sorry for you

war on this planet
is like never before,
it's in our minds and hearts and lands
I cry for the bloodshed
and shake my head,
with tears covering my hands

I don't know what to do
to end the brutality,
except maybe to yell
we have to remember
to really honor Thee Mother,
or our earth will go under
and everything plunder
into the depths of hell

yes, nature is cruel
to all of us fools
who think that we know best,
that to kill is ok,
let's have a party and play,
(because it's not us anyway)

we steal and lie and pollute our state,
but it's really really getting too late
if we don't make a stand
for our beloved mankind
that still lives in all of this land

I will send out prayers of peace and love
to heal all of this terrible strife,
but my heart is worried
because we haven't hurried
enough to fix our plight.

what will it take to turn things around
so that peace and life can really abound
in a world torn by storms
and so many alarms
of the internal and external kind?

how can we change
this faulty grand plan
that may eventually get us to heaven?
I fear it's too late,
for we have made a stake
in the heart of the land and our brethren

yes, the gods are angry
like never before
our energy is getting way too black,
and certainly can not open the door
to the treasures of life on earth
so please, help me get it back

if we all remember
to really help our neighbor
and that means across the world
and end this state in which we dwell
that we all seem to know so well
before it's all gone in a whirl

our days are numbered,
and that means don't just give up in fear
we must stay out of trouble
if we want to end this struggle
and stop all of this right here


for we may not be here next year.

^i'm so glad they resonate in you...please feel free to add any lyrics, quotes, writing that inspires you on this subject....

bringing this 8 line over from the last line, first line, written this afternoon....



by leading it into an endless war
there is fear it's forevermore
but it's not what we were created for
so sanctify this war no more....

it's time to call in a time of peace
to raise our vision and escape the prison
that's been locking us in so much fear....

it's time to stop the fighting here

to rise above
the hate and blood
means to be set
on a journey
that starts really early
but if it's not been part
of the parents' heart
how can we impart
it to our children?

yet somewhere in me
believes deep within
and just above
of everyone
we all have
that flying dove
trying to be heard
above the noise
of all the other birds

but when you fly
in peace and stillness
often you are barely seen
like a white whisp floating by
or just hovering
out of the corner of your eye
or there in your dreams
if your waking life
has not been filled
with so many screams
and horror

at this hour
millions suffering
beyond imagination
in hoods across the world
living lives of real nightmares
where peace flags
just can't unfirl
and if they did
they'd be needed
to wrap the bodies
of the freezing
and already dead

it has been said
it is going to take
much more
than peaceful intentions
and tremendous love
to change the suffering
and end the cruelty
from which we act
towards the planet
and all on it

to really change
the course of
humanity's destiny
and let the humane
in the word humanity
really come to be
for until we all
take responsibility
we will never be free
of these atrocities

'relish the now for it's gone so fast'
slipping quickly like the rest to the past
what will it take for us to last?
that is the eternal question

some say it's natural
not to worry about our survival
we've all been here before and returned for more
that there is truth to reincarnation

even our beloved planet
has been through a few cycles
of living and dieing and living again
perhaps the real resurrection

but right here right now
honestly can't really see how
if we keep up these abuses and all our excuses
our world will keep turning and not start burning

the holes in our air are really a scare
and rain forests? they're hardly there
we keep chopping and cropping without a care
and money is all that makes the world go round

one day we'll find it's just us and dead ground
with no oxygen to keep us alive
and then we''ll remember why the trees were so many
we really needed them to survive

but it will be too late
as it already is I fear
the day draws near for we have sealed our fate
from an unconscious and ignorant state

sunkist oranges and prisms

and in the now
looking within will always show how
to really know we're divine
and not just doing time
in a punishment line
but seeing with clear mind
there is nothing to forgive
for there is no hurt we haven't lived
that hasn't been matched equally
with some incredible love
that landed on our shoulder and sat awhile
quite miraculously
