Late Night Thoughts on Peace

by Jim Rapp

Peace is not the cessation of conflict,
but ceasing to be overcome by conflict.

Conflict is not the cessation of peace;
peace ends when one wills not to be at peace.

True peace is a condition of a mind,
unmoved by the conflicts that surround it.

Peacemakers are not conflict deniers;
grudgingly they wage conflict to win peace.

Conflict never ushers in lasting peace,
only weariness of conflict brings peace.
