Peace On Earth

I wonder when on earth it will ever be
when all can live truly free
and the sins of war
no longer knock on anyone's door,
ending what has sadly been
ever since when mankind did begin.

When will these seeds of hate
for another finally abate
with understanding and acceptance,
giving the human race a peaceful chance
to meet God's expectation
of His Own blessed creation?

For now, let us of like mind
pray for a sign that it will be so
before we go
where we do know
there is Heavenly peace for all,
who answers God's call.
