Figure out the Price of Peace:
the most valuable piece of advice
to help clients size up
and wise up
their eyes shut
and close up.
Because when they are standing so close-up to
of their settlement,
it’s so hard to look beyond
embattlement and toward betterment;
fear and resentments stand down
Impasse set in stone like concrete cement;
hard to understand what sage words
of rock-solid advice meant.
So here's some rap-at-ya tap-at-ya
to-strap-ya fears down,
flip you ‘round,
set you down on solid ground,
get-ya-ta think profound,
make decisions sound.
It’s blasted at you kindly,
silver bullets of finality,
medicinal doses of reality
replenishing your broke-up, broke-down vitality.
Yeah, it’s right there in your own pocket,
take it out and put it on,
a locket, ‘round your neck;
touching on your heart,
a heart-locket unlocking the blockage,
opening the heart’s knowledge,
an entire college of wisdom,
a key-card to unlocking the vision,
shelved inside the library of your heart,
your mind, your gut.
Open up this holy book and find
the Golden Fleece,
the Price of Peace.
Decide how much are you willing to pay,
to begin today
to put away
the soggy, shabby blanket of dank rank conflict;
The confusing disillusioning stank
Robbing your bank, emotional.
Consider this devotional:
My dearest one,
Am I ready for peace?
Can I get to that place?
Am I ready to receive grace?
Can I imagine a tomorrow
waking up without sorrow,
without the barb-wired,
blinding light of fight
in my face?
Wait, you mean
I can enter the ground hallowed?
Seed the fertile field lying fallow?
Dropping myself deep
into the surprisingly shallow sea.
with holy tears.
Cleansing lonely years,
Tear-wash that only fully flows
from letting the past go?
What is it worth and what should I pay?
What is fair exchange for peace?
What is the dollar value of invaluable relief?
It’s priceless when you’re lifeless,
But easily acquired,
by giving over to getting it over.
So, my friend,
ask not what your ex can do for you,
but what you can do for yourself.
Ask, and answer this
What is my price for peace?
