That which doesn't kill me can only make me stronger.

That brief moment when
the storm is silenced,
the waves calm,
the clock keeps a steady beat.

That brief moment is enough
to send shivers down your spine,
to make you thankful for what you have,
to set that smile back on your lips.

That brief moment filled
with calmness,
with serenity,
with love.

Little did they know that
when the world is in balance,
when hatred takes the day off,
peace lies beneath.

Every day of our lives
is a gift from above,
should not be taken for granted,
should not be filled with anger.

For peace to rule we must
drop the shield,
remove the mask,
pull the curtain.

That brief moment
can be the trigger
that reverses this curse
and grasps the reign of peace.

Peace is a gift that should be handled with extreme care.
