Lasting Peace

 

Lasting Peace
By Christine Hare Tate
~

In sleepy little villages
where hills are lush and green,
a false sense of placidity
makes life seem so serene.

It’s a tranquil picture
a slice of paradise,
but further down the road
the scene is not so nice.

Beauty turns to ugliness
in back alleys of humanity
when dreams turn into nightmares
in a portrait of reality.

On every street and avenue
in towns around the nation,
you can hear the cries
of souls in desperation.

Hoping for a life
where peaceful waters flow,
but they know it is a dream
no matter where they go.

Looking for green pastures?
I know where they’re found;
in the presence of the Lord
where hope and peace abound!
