PEACE ZIMBABWE PEACE

Peace!

My lover wrote me an sms
Hey babe can we have dinner tonight?
Candle lit,
Roses,
and whiskey!

Noo! I answered.
Tonight babe, and tomorrow
I just want Peace!

My daughter whispered in my ear
"Mummy, can I do your favourite coffee
and light a fire for our night reading
Before I throw the warm blanket on your bed?

Noo babe, Noo!
Not tonight babe
Not tomorrow either
I want one thing tonight
tomorrow, and forever
I want peace

I want peace in the voting queues
I want peace in the ballot boxes
Peace in the counting rooms
Peace in the meeting rooms
Yes Zimbabwe
Tonight, tomorrow and forever
Women demand Peace!

WOW

Hi Chibairo,

WOW ! What a beautiful piece/poem. You are so talented.

Of course, by now of course, you realize they ARE peace in your inner world.

Look forward to reading more from you.
