I Am For Peace (Psalm 120)










I am for peace


I see fear and sadness, people weary of the world

I don't know what to say but I will try


I am for peace


Terror and violence far away and close to home

Ammunition, words and hands-- Where do we stand?


I am for peace


News is streaming in

Can't ignore the suffering

Evil only needs good people to be silent


I am for peace


Kitchen table, council meet-ing, hallways, sidewalks of the world

Texting, talking, meeting someone, I open my hand and reach out


I am for peace


Angry at myself, sometimes call myself bad names

Outrage in the mirror

Let forgiveness start


I am for peace


Poison in the air, garbage in the soil and sea

Feel the planet strain

I'll do what I can today


I am for peace


There are people we don't like

Ones who rub us the wrong way

We don't have to be best friends, but find a way to share the world


I am for peace
