poets for peace

heres a couple of poems, which is a medium I also use - I think a lot of conflict reoslution work only reaches the rational and cerebral side of human nautre, whereas conflicts come from deep within the psyche... and so to heal them, we must draw on the inspiration of the muses and the work of poetry...
