About

Following tragic events of mid-March 2019 in Christchurch, a poem on the subject of peace seemed very appropriate. The poem suggests that in another part of the universe, there might be other versions of ourselves, where everyone lives in peace. If we look inside our own hearts, and speak kindly to others, we might find peace too.


In another constellation
live another you and I
happy to be with one another
so in love and so alive
perhaps they both have children
could it be their wars have ceased
or maybe they're not hungry
living in a world of peace

Look above and you will see them
they're not difficult to find
view your soul, and be them
test your heart and test your mind
we have so much life in common
a date with destiny to keep
it only takes a word well spoken
and life on earth would live in peace.

-- Charles M. Moore --
