The Decision For Peace

I am awakened by the robin’s song
Or perhaps it is a mockingbird
Reminding me that all is just perception
Of life and friends and loves
That finds us either happy or discontent.

I have found peace in the depths of me
Or perhaps I just finally made room for it
Reminding me of the fickleness of each day
Of the consuming drama and silly offenses
That we all either contribute to or salve.

I am unimportant to this noisy world
Or perhaps I am John the Baptist
Reminding us all of our responsibility
Of forgiving our enemies and ourselves, so
That peace will quietly lead us all Home.
