Peace by Nicholas Gordon

Peace is not the product of despair.
An army’s most invincible least used.
Strength engenders weakness when abused,
Serving best by merely being there.
One conquers in the end by being just,
Vanquishing the conscience with the right.
Each child that’s passed over in the night
Restores just one-half bullet’s worth of trust.
(Nicholas Gordon, 1940 – )
