    I was looking
    For a little peace
    Only got a portion
    Sometimes a little bliss
    Is blinded
    By a man
    His tongue kiss
    Demanding a little piece
    Apprehending
    Your little peace of mind
    Depending
    On what piece you find
    The piece
    That stays home all day
    To play out all night
    Or the piece
    That cums at sunset
    Is peace out by sunlight
    Fragments of peace
    Are just
    Pieces to a puzzle
    A little peace don't fit to
    A little peace
    Can't survive
    Around other pieces
    Pulling it's
    Peacefulness down
    Somebody elses
    Piece of man
    Mean he ain't mine
    I was looking for
    A little peace
    I only got a portion
    The peace
    I got only stayed
    A piece
    Of the time required
    A little peace
    Ain't enough
    To sit back
    Smoke rings
    On a peace pipe
    I closed my eyes to enjoy
    My peace
    Opened them
    To find you had stole
    My peace
    Wasn't nothing
    Left for you to steal
    Accept my piece
    Of a little peace
    When I
    Got off my knees
    In prayer
    I was looking
    For the last peace I had
    It kept me celibate
    Realized
    I had sold it
    For a piece of ***
    That asked me
    To get back
    On my knees
    A high price I paid
    For a peace
    That didn't last
    No more than a piece
    Of forty-five minutes
    I was looking for
    A little peace
    Only got a portion

    When I found
    A little piece
    I put one bullet
    In the chamber
    Didn't know if
    I was going
    To do homicide
    Or suicide
    For me to have
    A little peace
    I put one bullet
    In the chamber
    Your clique
    My clique
    Your clique
    My clique
    A little peace
    Can't stop no war
    Just a portion
    Last time we talked
    You only heard
    The pieces you wanted to
    Last time I listened
    You only talked
    About my piece
    Which was just a portion
    Last time I was willing
    To piece it together
    Nobody was talking
    Although
    There was silence
    It wasn't peace
    So….
    What piece
    Don't you understand?
    The peace
    Of me that loves ?
    Or
    The piece
    Of me that hates?
    .......It's just a portion

    You don't
    Want a piece of this!

    You don't
    Want a peace of this!
    ......It's just a portion

    I was looking for
    A little piece of mine
    To give me
    A little peace of mind
    But If the piece
    I gave you
    Ain't the peace
    You need
    Can you
    Give me back
    My portion?
    I only got
    A little piece......
    Peace​

    pieces of peace...

    so much of our time
    is compartmentalized
    into smaller portions of WAIT
    so, i can relate to this REQUEST
    for a small piece of PEACE
    at least
    tomorrow brings the hope
    of new beginnings
    though...opportunities for new endings
    sometimes get in the way
    coz of the games we play
    but...hey

    WE HOPE FOR THE BEST

    ENJOYED.

    let the river flow.

    Roxanne - I applaud your poetic craftsmanship. The interplay of words was done seamlessly without infringing on the meaning of those words. Only the deft hand of a poet can write it and the deft talent of the poet create it. Well done Roxanne. Loved it. Namyh

    yes

    when you're giving your all and you're getting back things in piecemeal
    it could lead to taking you there

    when it comes to this point you've given too much with no return

    run shorten the menu and preserve yourself

    piece

    :thinking:

    peace
