Conflicts for a Peaceful Life

The poem below is dedicated to the memory of Stella Cornelius.

by Francisco Gomes de Matos, a peace linguist from Recife, Brazil

Of LIFE,conflicts are a part
that Humankind often has to face
conflicts may break one´s heart
they happen in all kinds of space

To each conflict we hope to find a solution
by working inter-trans-disciplinary ways
to conflicts we humanizingly seek resolution
which can ensure us of truly peaceful days

fighting,disharmony and struggle, by CONFLICT can be subsumed
when incompatibily, incomprehension and interference are shown
To a myriad conflicts a constructive solution can be assumed
when DIGNITY, HUMAN RIGHTS AND PEACE in soils everywhere are sown
