A free verse poem of finding peace.

Blinded by the Conflict

As raw emotions controls our mind,
Righteousness is blinded by hatred.

Peace is blind-folded through revenge,
Leading to no sight for a truce.

In order to see harmony at the end of the light,
That dark mask must come off to discover all viewpoints.

Once sight can explore all opinions,
Your brain will see perfect vision.

Forming a pact that was once brutal,
Changing into a civil agreement with many possibilities.

That is the kind of thinking we need at this time, but too many cannot or will not drop that dark mask of fear and hatred. You have expressed the unexplainable perfectly. Great poem.
