The Promise of Peace

Is it good or evil that our end will record
Is man good or his promise spoiled?
Is goodness in our heart by its own accord
Or by evil's hand our nature soiled?

How else ever find, on Earth, peace?
First, learn what in our nature is true
As long as these battles never cease
Humanity and peace an unlikely brew.

How many martyrs to our higher selves known
That to the greatest injustices fought?
By such sacrifice the seeds of goodness sown
And the hope of our kind have brought.

In the last act is our final judgment given
That evil was always ours to control
Something in our hearts always written
That the promise of peace no evil overthrow.
