The dream of peace returns to dust
[The dream of peace returns to dust]


The dream of peace returns to dust --
And promise slowly dies --
A plainer picture never was --
A sadder be there none --

No hopeful words remain to say --
As all avert their eyes --
Yet still the Earth revolves its way --
Around a shining sun.

Unfortunately, there has never been peace in the world. As bad as things seem today, it doesn't compare in scope with the world wars. During the darkest days of WW2, it must have really seemed that the world was coming to an end....Yer pal and bro, len

I enjoyed reading this. It does seem like the hope for peace in this world is fading, yet as bad things happen in the world, it keep spinning.

A thought-provoking write.

World Peace?? Maybe so, but I interpret this sad, poignant, and beautiful poem as much more personal then that.

You know I am usually wrong, and probably am this time too. It's beautifully penned David.

Wow. I've sat here and just read that poem over and over for the past little bit. It's amazing, been added to my favourites and just exemplifies both truth and beauty in brevity.

It captures the implacable nature of time. Impassive despair, that with time simply becomes history.  Nice poem, full of feeling, and hopefulness???
