the doctor yells
young mother weeps
they see the fear in her

and in the midst
of all the pain
they try to calm this fear

where is the Peace
that doctor said
would come when he appeared

she sees it now
in one small face
a boy who has her eyes

and then his cry
brings more along
and tears are no surprise

the nurse then asks
what about Peace?
Peace is the child here
