There's no peace in the world. Poetry entry for Poetry Topic of the month of August 2021.
Minus Willingness

International Peace
Eludes the world.
Beginning with us
And those around us.

We disagree with one another
In this issue and that.
We stand firmly for our right
To believe what and how we want.

There's no thought of compromise
And no wish to give in.
So it goes,
From one home to another.

From one city to the next,
From one country to those
Around them, and to those
Across the oceans.

And so peace eludes us,
Eludes us all.

Prompt 3, International Peace
