___One night I sat under a spectacular moon, far from my room on a lagoon. I went there to find some serenity, and all I found was a noisy loon. But after a while that loon seem to be, the serenity i was looking for, for me. As I sat there and listened to his wonderful tune, I looked to the heavens and gazed at that beautiful moon. As the stars that surrounded it sparkled with delight, I sudden felt nothing but fright. For the dark that surrounded me, echoed with many strange noises. My fright came upon me in various stages, sometimes making me wish I couldn't hear the voices. ___I felt that a least if I were in a cage, I would be free of the fear I had which made me enraged. I went there to escape the everyday strife. The kind you know people get just from living an everyday normal life. The stress of a job, family, shopping, cleaning, and grooming one's self. Sometimes can cause you so much stress it can effect your health. But most people say that they take it all in stride. So they giggle, and laugh all to make you think they are OK, but they are not it was all meant to hide. The anxiety they really felt inside, thinking that by joking they could set it aside.
___But after a while all the voices I heard, weren't even voices. It was a elk, a wolf, an owl, and the birds that were making these noises. Then they started to blend into that tune of the loon, which made it even more peaceful under the moon. As I sat there, I felt a peace come over me, so I started to pray on my knees. For the World around me that it could be free, of the war,and turmoil I see everyday. I prayed that all the people around this World, could live free of the bombs, bullets, and hand grenades that were being hurled.
___Onto their homes, schools, shops, and their children. Onto a people who only wanted to be happy, instead of feeling like they lived in a fire caldron. A people who wants to live a normal life, instead of worrying if at the end of the day, you would come home to husband, orwife. I prayed that the world of dominating leaders, would once think of the past wars we fought, just because we were greedier. Then any people had a right to be, so much so we started to steal from the people across the worlds big seas. When I prayed to the Lord will it end, will it only end when everyone is dead. This made me feel so sad it caused me to feel, confused in my head. ___So I looked to the sky where there was that beautiful moon, and had to ground myself by listening to the loon. Ground myself by listening to the elk, the deer, and the pretty birds tunes. And to remind myself what a beautiful place I was in sitting by that lagoon. Then once I had grounded myself, I continued to pray on my knees. That the Lord, would bring His blessings onto this World, so we all could be safe, and all could be free. Of the worry of always being at war, I prayed He would change the greedy right down to their core. I pray that the Lord humbles them to realize. That being at war never wins you the prize, and all that it does is leave lots of tears in our eyes. ___So now it is time that I say to the Lord, thank you for listening and hearing my prayers. I knew that He heard them because, a peace came over me, and I had not even a care. So I rose from my knees, and realized that if war was what I wanted to rid theis World of. I had to start by showing my fellow man nothing but love. Treat them like the Lord does us from above, for He only wishes us nothing but joy, happiness, and love. Then join together with the people who desire the same thing I do, a World free of war. And go after those leaders that are only greedy to their core. And let them know to put an end to this war, because it is the people all over the world, we should love, protect and adore. Amen
