War and Peace

The difference between war and peace
Is one will cause you pain,
While the other one can save the world
And give so much to gain.
The similarity found in war and peace
Is they both can be of value.
While for one they both save lives,
They also destroy too.
When it comes to war and peace,
I don’t know what to say,
For they both kill our loved ones,
Yet again save our day.
War and peace is like love and pain,
To truly have the best
You must have reason to appreciate,
To feel you’ve passed the test.

PS. A friend asked me to write on War and Peace. He chuckled when he read this because he didn’t know I never heard of the book War and Peace. And no, I still haven’t read it.

Holy Confidence

Shhh… secrets of God!
Too fragile to be spoken.
Vows of confidence
Not to be broken.
Strength of honor
Hidden Within.
Trial of endurance
Not to give in.
Treasured whispers.
Precious thoughts.
Valuable lessons
Patiently taught.
Faithful silence.
Devoted oath.
Holiness is given
In both.
