Peace

War raps impatiently at the gate

Demanding

 

“Give me more!”

 

They gift bombs and rockets and jets

Scattering sheep

 

They desire yours for themselves

Aggressive and tactical

They threaten to bury you

 

They tell you

“You are trouble!!”

 

As THEIR tanks sit by YOUR land

Scaring the lambs

 

But you know your country

 

You know the ground

Every hill

And every sound

 

This is your country

 

Though armies and tanks come

You will not run

 

Aloft in tall towers

You watch them come

 

Nothing need be done

The throne is guarded

 

But the gates are down..

 

The knights are ready

The armies sound

 

You nod to the sentry

A single knight leaves the entry

 

Riding to the front

Casual

Calm

Humility and strength his only arms

 

The rifles are cocked and the tanks in place

Every gun aimed at one solitary space

 

“I challenge your leader”

He quietly asserts

 

Gun fire fills the air

Smoke insults and threats beware

 

The knight sits aloft his stable steed

 

Not a graze

Not a bullet

Not a hole in a sleeve

 

He waits

 

Silence creeps

Tension peaks

 

“I challenge your Leader”

He quietly asserts

 

Silence

Not a peep

 

A smile turns the corner of his lip

 

He knows it is bluff

Kids stuff

 

No further words are said

 

He turns his back to the enemy

Casually

Calmly

Lopes back to the entry

 

This is his country

He knows the ground

Every hill

Every sound

 

 

‘Don’’t let the behaviour of others destroy your inner peace.’
