Peace Corps

Peace Corps

revisit the peace corps and all it can be
for many experience its global ability
an ability to connect and profoundly affect
the lives of the suffering, lest we forget

our world is a mix of the haves and have nots
all with an abundance of co-singular thoughts
experiencing the challenges that others endure
the way to bring balance and understanding for sure

conflict arises when life is too hard
often thru generations some will be scarred
often its political and power misused
ignoring the sufferers is how they’re abused

enter the peace corps and the clear vision of youth
they carry such compassion and are the living proof
of how to bring justice and opportunities to all
in every corner of this world, may they answer the call
