We march forward

Outrageous, audacious

Seeking freedom

From harm

We bring our words

And our signs

And our hope

For all of the tomorrows


When we should march forward

With shield and spear

And take the field

Without asking it to be given

We hold a prayer for peace

Close within our hearts

While the world around us

Chooses destruction




The time for quiet prayers will close

The time to take up a shield comes

And the call is for all of us

To answer

For our daughters and our sons

For the world that should be

For the safety of women, of all

And the value of life and those living it – Caroline A. Slee

A Prayer for Peace #wwwblogs
