Who Are The Peacemakers?

we all are
each time we pause to hold a child,
each time we extend a gentle hand
each good deed done
each kind word said
each moment of compassion felt
we are keeping the peace

each time we speak truth to power
each time we take a stand against harmful action
each time we defend those most vulnerable
each time we offer our talents for good use
each time we pause to keep ourselves even
each time we hold each other up
we are keeping the peace

each day we remember
that peace is the strongest fabric
that weaving peace takes more courage
than generating war
each day we choose to stay at the loom
weaving our portion, with steady hands
we are keeping the peace
