A thought for peace

From the heart of a peacebuilder and grandson of a Somali nomad

Home is Somalia,
Where peace is dear,
Where hearts are bound in fear
... All ye, the International Day of Peace, is near!

Some call it a pirates' haven,
Others, a den of terror,
Renowned for drought and famine…
You get it, a tale of horror.

Home is Somalia, my home it will be.
Find me here,
in rain or drought... in poverty or vanity....
my land it is , to I, so dear

I will stay here in prayer,
for peace to stay in the air,
and Somalis to observe a ceasefire.
On peace day, and forever.
