End of Strife

Of people and faces, of colors and races
Our worlds a collage of grimaces and graces

On nations and faith, on political parties we scorn
We debate and we argue early into the morn 

We like, we dislike, and we distance ourselves
Oneness in all creation, our mind hastily dispels 

Through peaks and vales, through marshes and meadows
Life’s journey meanders through mercurial highs and lows 

With victories and losses, with hope and despair
We stoop and we rise, we renew and repair 

Is there an end to this vicious cycle, or
Will we resign, and just endlessly endure? 

There is more that binds than severs ties
This universal truth should open our eyes

 To serve is supreme, to love divine
Is the only purpose of this grand design

 Accepting joyously this true nature of life
Will forever end the disquiet and strife
