Peace on Earth

Working, Striving towards a more Peaceful World "I WRITE, I SHARE, I DREAM!"

PEACE ON EARTH
“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step i take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.”

“Man is a great wall builder…”

BOOKS BY CRAIG LOCK

berlin wall2

Man is a great wall builder
The Berlin Wall
The Wailing Wall of Jerusalem
But the wall most impregnable
Has a moat
flowing with fright
around his heart

A wall without windows for the spirit to breeze through
without a door for love to walk in.”
