The Price Of Peace

Peace without Justice is a low estate,-
A coward cringing to an iron Fate!
But Peace through Justice is the great ideal,-
We'll pay the price of war to make it real.

My generation is weary of war- time after time we see it solve nothing. Yet if the cause is just and the need for it is unavoidable, this poem speaks the harsh truth.
Positive ideas of peace in brief poem and it is great.
