One day, the world will be at Peace
One day, people will see their ways
One day, man will seek freedom from his cage within
One day, anger will not be generated by self-created addiction
One day, our childhood instinct to reach out won’t have been ripped way and replaced with fear
One day, we will remember without pain and have no need to spread the blame
One day, man will pass another without judgement
One day, difference will be respected as neighbours become friends
One day, we will choose to do right by all
One day, mental illness will be a thing of the past
One day, obesity of man will be shared among the starving nations
One day, water will be seen for its worth
One day, the need to cry out in pain will be replace with inner peace
On this one day, the world will at last see Peace
Verona Pentony is a poet with a purpose. Her mission is one of peace. Motivated, from an early age, by an ambition to meet people from all walks of life, her mission has taken her to many places and has achieved recognition and reciprocation in some far-flung quarters of the world.
A Song for Forgiveness (from her debut collection, Reflections from the Heart, part of the Reflections series) was recorded in Nashville in July 2021, Tennessee by singer, Katy Lynn Johnson:
Take the train to Forgiveness County;
Everyone has a heartache to mend.
Learning the lessons all of us must one day see.
Making the enemy into your friend.
“All Missions begin as thoughts, embryos of an idea that grow into a visualised result,” says Verona. For her, it began on 18 December 2003, when she received the guiding sign to promote World Peace and Forgiveness. Thus began her distribution of The White Rose of Peace Card during the Iraq War.
