    Where can I go where the noise will cease?
    Where crime is down, with justice and peace.

    Where beauty is seen and also heard
    And love is shared, in thought and word.

    Nowhere! I say, and I know it's the truth
    Look our prisons, our community, our youth.

    Look at the system, were victims cry out
    Where the innocent are shot, and corruption runs about.

    Where the gavel goes down and silence is heard
    And justice and peace, are no longer mere words.

    Does freedom really mean, nothing else to loose?
    Or is justice and peace, a choice we choose.

    Oh how I wish ...justice and peace was a choice we choose....but unfortunitly it's not.
    I feel you on this poem...it's very nice and I like where you took it ...
    keep penning reality.

    We can try to choose, but often it's beyond us. You give us something else to ponder.

    very deeply felt

    It is our choice to choose justice and peace, but there is just to much hatred in this world.......loved your piece
