WHAT PEACE? by Thandeka Gonde

All the things I've seen and heard
All the things I've perceived and felt
All the things that are
That I wish were not
But my wishes will not make them not
Do wishes come true?

All the pain I kept inside
All the silence I held onto
When I would have said so much
All the words I held back
As though I held my peace
For, what peace is there?
When there is so much to be said
That remains unsaid
