    I just want peace.
    I believe with peace comes freedom.
    Freedom to laugh, to cry, or to scream.
    Freedom from the love of material things.

    Peace to do as God intends,
    And freedom for Him to heal and mend.

    The windows of Heaven to open up and blessings to fall out,
    Love, joy and peace are what I’m speaking about.

    That’s what I want, it’s in my heart, it’s in my mind.
    A world where we can really love our neighbor and be cordial and kind.
    To love spiritually and not of the flesh,
    To trust in God to finish the rest,
    To act on instruction not a feeling at all,
    To stand up and be strong not weak and scared,
    Satan, just waiting for your fall.

    I just want peace.
    I believe with peace comes freedom.
    To be happy,
    To be sad, and yes to even scream.
    A scream from deep within, scream for peace,
    You know what I mean?

    I’m not asking for too much,
    I don’t want a car and I don’t want a ring.
    I just want peace, that’s all,
    You know what I mean?

    I know exactly what you mean, as all who read this piece do. You spelled this out plainly, I would love to have this as well.

    this was very uplifting
    sometimes peace is taken too lightly
    or not taken seriously at all
    but none of us can dare say we don't need it
    keep the flow goin :hot: :hot:
