Words and Music by Tina Tessina
How shall we know When peace is here to stay?
How can we grow in peaceful, loving ways?
When will the struggle be transformed into the dance?
Can faith be strong enough to take the chance?
Chorus: Hold out your hand and touch the shape of peace
And side by side we’ll watch the struggle cease
The Hand of God will touch and heal the breach
When we are one, when we have learned
The shape of peace
The shape of peace is in the silent stars
That dance in time to Power beyond ours
We cannot hide, we cannot shout it down
After the battle, the silence is profound.

|Absolutely beautiful. I strive for peace daily inspite of; recognizing that it is possible if we will get past self, if only for a moment. When we find something that we must have no matter what, we will do whatever it takes to achieve; receive or have that thing; person or moment. Beautiful read, thanks for sharing...|

|There is such hope and tranquility in this poem. It makes my heart and soul feel like there is, indeed, a possibility for peace. While it may not be here, it WILL be in heaven.
God bless you. Kathy
