"People do not drift toward Holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobed

The peacemakers’ war is never won
Setting aside their emotions,
They hide behind glossy eyes
And lie that they simply had an itch, or a speck of dust found its why upon it..
They’ve become masters at covering up,
When pain or disappointments come from ones deeply loved,
It burns hotter and stronger than a hand to a kettle..
But they say their cold, and wear gloves to cover their burns..
Their masks become more and more apart of their appearance
Their true beauty laid aside.
For hiding is easier then confronting.. Or is it?
Pretending everything is ok..
Because harmony is sweeter than discord,
And they will keep their feelings locked away and swallow the key,
To preserve that “harmony”
But what is truly harmony when their sick in agony?
Does any of it actually make it better?
The peacemaker naively continues to believe so.

The author's comments:
I wrote this because I have either been in friendships or relationships, where they would really hurt me by the way they'd act or things they say or how they'd make me feel. And I'm the type of person that goes by the motto "sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me" even though that saying is such a lie. But I some how thought that pretending everything was fine when it wasn't would be better than just being up front, cause I didn't want to offend them or whatever. Anyway from all that I wrote this poem.
