Peace Dove’s Wings Unfurl

“Let us forgive each other – only then will we live in peace.” – Leo Nikolaevich Tolstoy

My dear, dear peace dove,

You’ve been my steadfast companion,

a friend so true.

From my earliest memories,

you’ve graced my view,

A symbol of hope,

guiding me through.

Tales of old whispered,

“Never war on German land.”

As a native of these soils,

I’ve toiled and tilled,

Cultivating a spirit in Ireland

that could not be stilled,

Facing history’s weight,

with courage instilled.

Proudly East German,

yet forging ahead,

Embracing change,

leaving the past behind,

For you, dear Hope,

my heart is aligned,

In pursuit of peace,

the soul’s noble bind.

Through trials and tribulations,

your wings unfurled,

A beacon of light in a tumultuous world,

With strength and resilience,

my flag unfurled,

Inward transformation,

where true change is twirled.
