Peace and Enemies by Elizabeth Padillo Szybist

Peace, peace, peace!
We cry for peace
And we think that
by killing our enemies
peace can be achieved.

But peace can never
dwell in our midst
by killing our enemies.

For as many are killed
as many are the thousands
of the silent ones
who will rise up
to avenge these deaths!

There is never peace
in the cycle of revenge and hate.
