thoughts on world peace

the goal is worthy but the getting there is
most likely many generations away
evolution takes a very long time
and the world peace hope
gets grabbed by self promotion etc.
and we get distracted
from the steps that get us there

one step seeks peace within the self
two step seeks peace within a community
three step seeks peace within a nation

are you peaceful tonight
does it seem out of sight
tell me dear
are you peaceful tonight
