64. Wanda VanHoy Smith--Spelling Peace


What does peace mean?
It all depends on how we spell it out.
Piece can be something sweet.
Fudge, a piece of apple pie, frosted cake
with sixteen candles or something big
like a piece of property.
A piece of good advice is welcome,
A piece of someone's mind can hurt.

Peace is bitter sweet when it ends a conflict.
Sometimes the cost of peace is too high.
When peace comes with a folded flag
wives and mothers sons and brothers
wonder why?
Why can't countries keep peace
without the price?
