Come si dice…Peace?

I wish I could explain to her
Why there are so many wars, and peace is hard to find
I’m ashamed to say I’m only 21 and I live a better life
Than the majority of the world
Hatred, shame, brutality at the moment rule our earth.
If I tell her peace will return, it would only be wishful of me to think
And I feel like a such a hypocrite
Explaining humanity’s suffering from a distance, out the thick of it
Can I really understand how other people live
Whilst sitting in my house, with running water
And made of brick

come si dice…Peace? – 4/8/2014

The Voice

Your prejudice does not erase
That I am human
With the content of my character
I am a woman
With the Love in my heart
I am a mother
With patience and kindness
I am a friend
Bearing the burden of your hate
purifies my soul
Your humiliation
is equal to my humility
and so
sets me free
