Peace on Earth, my latest poetry piece.

Peace on Earth
©  2015 All Rights Reserved   Sy’needa Penland

Does my righteousness offend you?
Some may say I act to proud.
Say my voice speaks of temperament,
Say I boast and sing to loud.

Say I speak of untold truths,
Whose tales are buried deep;
From the surface of Mother Earth
Buried souls do speak.

Their injustices never righted,
Their shallow graves go unmarked,
Anguished souls left to wander
Aimlessly in the dark.

Lost souls are not forgotten,
Their bodies decayed and rotten.
Surfaced from the depths of the earth,
Their truths long forgotten.

Receded by her waves,
Resurrected from their graves,
Brought forth to cleanse us of hate;
What the living soul forever craves.

Go to sleep dear child
As I put your soul to rest.
Cleanse and heal your children of hate,
Nourish them to do their very best.

Go to sleep dear child,
The fight is already won;
Bring forth new beginnings
Under the healing light of the Sun.

Go to sleep dear child
As I prepare you for rebirth;
May the Heavenly Universe
Always bless and protect the soul
Our beloved Mother Earth.
