Peace shines as stars where individuals stand together in acceptance of both what is same and what is different.
Hands clasping elsewhere create exclaves of understanding; while unification may never occur, claims of love may continue to stake majorities.
Some hearts beat vermilion while others pump cells lateritious: souls of distinct hues can still common goals fuse.
One can neither arrogate that which is freely given nor that which can never belong to a singular; the piece each person plays in the peace is just as integral as every other constituent.
No amount of conflict nor terror nor hopelessness can ever leave the pursuit of harmony démodé for just as stars warm and illuminate otherwise drowning, gelid darkness, human strength via will has the power to create brighter days amidst a world that oft teems with frays. ; )
