203. Peace 

I don’t comprehend those who actively choose to disrupt peace, kill calm or destroy lives. There is no task more purposeless than that of hurting others; we hurt others enough without trying. I wrote this haiku after struggling to rationalise the irrational events of a recent act of terror. 

Peace, five letters roar, 

We seek no hate nor fuel war, 

We love, only so.
