My entry for the UN International Poetry for Peace Contest

For International Peace Day

Elisha Gabriel

Listen                                                                                    

War

Makes

A sound

Twice Louder

Than my beating heart

Come make peace with me sweet desire

So that I may kiss your face when the dawn light breaks dear
