There Is No Peace

By Alyssa Duckworth (Rated G)

There is no peace
People cannot
Will not choose it
They do not know
Or willfully oppose
And I
One voice
One path
One choice
Cannot stem the tide
Of poison pride
A wise uncle said it best
Pride is not shame’s rival, but its source
The antidote is not reprisal
But remorse
