Peace Was Won, by Mark Blain

With an eager heart,
and a will on fire,
I sought to win
my great desire.

“Peace shall be mine,”
I cried!
But life grew bitter
in the endless strive.

My heart grew weary and
my pride wounded deep.
To heaven I wailed,
“God give me peace!”

The shimmering stars
glimmered no reply.
So I said to God,
“I must die!”

Broken at last
I bowed my head,
forgetting all myself
and said:

“Whatever comes
God’s will be done,
and at that moment
peace was won!
