How does man live free of fear, of conquering nation upon nation?

Peace trumpets
peace into the streets,
dreams of city folk
while country men reign
rolling terrain.

Journey’s anguish,
anguished days
soldiers’ tears
a futile end.

Man lives
lives free of fear,
in the crossfire
children perish
conquer nation upon nation.

Anguished journeys,
days anguish
a soldiers’ tears
to promise.

Poetry
