by Lucio Muñoz
Can you tell me please,
What is the nature of peace?,
When it can be lasting
And when it can be lacking?
Peace is the combination of cooperation,
As only under fairness,
Cooperation, accommodation and forgiveness
Become drivers of lasting peace,
As then they provide the symphony for a respectful human dance.
It is known that under unfairness,
Peace can not be timeless,
As goodwill dissipates at the mediation gate.
