The Cost

it is addressed thusly:
A thought.
it reads:
How is freedom different than peace?
Or how is peace other than freedom?
Something of both at least
Must be what is between them
Which men seek but know not of
And must miss the mark for either
Men want to believe peace is love
And freedom, if you'll believe her
Is no constraint from other men
Or just not of affirmation
Acceptance, attention and then
What is the realization?
Clear as day in this darkling plane
That they are by any device
Both goods by truth and by name
And ev'ry good shall receive its price.

  1. How have there been times
    When peace endured for love?
    Then sudden tides when that same
    Peace became the cause of strife.
    If from One Spirit this fruit is borne
    Then surely peace ought constant remain
    Yet love is freely given one to another
    And must endure the cost of choice.
