An Atom of Peace

There holds promise within an atom of peace that does not evade us

A peace that moves our soul and anchors there within every particle of our being
It becomes all of me

There holds compassion within one's heart that is nursed by the nebulas womb for all of humanity
A compassion that from the beginning that holds no structure, ego, politics or religion,
It becomes all of me

There holds fortitude within love the rests within the quasars like shooting stars,
A fortitude that is infinite
It becomes the light of me

There holds intention within beautiful speech that harnesses clarity
An intention which is the breath of life
It becomes the light of me

There holds promise within an atom of peace that transmutes fear beyond courage
It becomes the grace of me
A peace that rests at the seat of our soul and shapes our destiny

It becomes the Truth of me
