Peace and Pain

The world will know real pain
Out of love, sacrifice is born
Hate is born, and we are able to know pain

People will kill one another
And confirm what true pain is
In this endless cycle of hatred comes pain

To be human is to confront hate
Each and every one of us battles hatred
Monster of hate will not die
It will give birth to move pain

The fear instilled by that pain would prevent wars
And the world will be on the road to stability and peace
After decades pain will eventually fade with time
So peace has stumbled upon me

Pain will give rise to momentary peace
Once people start killing, you will know pain
The world will know real pain.

This poem reminds of a the Yeats poem called "The Second Coming."  You should read it and write on here what you think.
