Seeking Peace

Just Because

Romans 12:18
New International Version (NIV)

18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.


Just Because

If life were such a simple thing
We’d never have a spat,
But we must walk on eggshells
Or a war we’ll soon begat,

I’ll do this and you’ll react,
Then it all gets out of hand,
How these things get started
I’ll never know or understand,

It seems we’ve always had our fights,
Somehow we never got along,
I’ve felt the sting of your sharp words
Never knowing just what was wrong,

Why did it start so long ago?
Why does it still go on?
I guess we’ll blame it on someone else
And keep trying to get along?

Perhaps it would be better
If we simply would depart,
But for the strangest reasons
We’re bound together at the heart,

If life were such a simple thing
We’d know what was the cause,
But this crazy dance will never end
And the reason seems, “just because”.
