Unveiled Passion

by C.Kennedy Hassett Braden '73

PEACE
comes
not through flowers
nor songs of rainbows
but
fiercely emerges
through the piercing of the human soul,
gifting the rise of the Phoenix,
no longer complacent
with the persistence of order.
PEACE
comes through
celebration
deep in the heart of darkness
giving birth to the invisible
daring
to deliver what has yet to be,
unveiling the vision of lifetimes.
PEACE comes through effulgent passion,
fierce outbursts
of who we are...
Truth to the wall,
Love to the broken,
the ineffable portal of the Heart.
