2: Peace Will Rule By Robert Vilkelis Peace is a virtue, Peace is like the first leaves in the Springtime. A shining beacon of hope. Peace is when the howling of bombs cease and when guns shoot their last bullet. When everyone can settle their differences, and just get along. Nobody will fight over territories, or dismiss someone for the colour of their skin. Peace will someday rule the world, And when that day comes, People will no longer breathe toxic gas, but fresh air. Instead of walking on ash, people will walk on gorgeously green grass. When that day comes, People will no longer fear the world.
3: What Is Peace? By Robert Vilkelis What is Peace? Peace is the opposite of war, A virtue, Something that will never hurt you, A time without violence, With absolute silence. Saying good-bye, To the fire and ash that was in the sky. Peace is divine, Peace is wondrous, It's beautiful And marvelous Peace is serenity, Peace is tranquility, Peace is the reward, Of perfect harmony.
4: Mother Nature By Robert Vilkelis Earth's fickle lover On whimsy she showers rain Next nods to make snow Then claps her hands for thunder Or paints new mornings with dew.

6: Peace By Robert Vilkelis Curled under a summer tree, Jason was devouring another history book. The book spoke of soldiers and trenches, Of armies fighting armies, Of men against men. Jason so proud of his little toy uniform so proud of his little toy soldiers he daydreamed of commanding squadrons against the enemy, of riding on the highest hill to celebrate his victory and look down at the Enemy defeated and in despair. But his mom called him with sudden news they would move soon she said move to another country, Jason was confused. Jason arrived in the early morning his new school looked quite different a lovely building so white that it looked like it was covered in icing children from many nationalities were walking and talking together from Germany, from Israel, from Japan and from China, from England and from France, from Iraq, from the USA. Jason saw no war, Jason saw no enemy, Jason saw no nations, just kids playing with kids and friends having lunch with friends. It was then, that Jason understood that life isn't about waging war, or fighting armies and men, It is about passion and peace and everyone working together to build a better future.
8: Poetic Devices 1.PERSONIFICATION: I used ‘personification’ in my poem titled ‘Peace Will Rule’. I said in my poem ‘Peace is when the howling of bombs cease.’ It is personification because bombs/explosives are inanimate objects. It makes the reader feel happy because howling is a sad thing, like bombs are. It also gives the reader the impression that the bombs are ‘Happy’ to no longer be dropped. 2.RHYME: I used ‘rhyme’ in my poem titled ‘Peace Will Rule’. I said in my poem ‘Peace is when the howling of bombs cease.’ Rhyme is when two words sound the same, in this case ‘Peace’ and ‘Cease’ both rhyme with each other. It makes the reader feel that the poem has more of a rhythm, it also make the poem sound nicer when you create links between words. 3.SIMILE: I used ‘simile’ in my poem ‘Peace Will Rule’. I said in my poem ‘Peace is like the first leaves in the Springtime’. Simile is when someone (or something) is compared to someone (or something) else by using as or like. I gives the reader the impression that peace is as beautiful as the first, young leaves in spring.
9: 4.ALLITERATION: I used ‘alliteration’ in my poem titled ‘Peace Will Rule’. I said in my poem ‘People will walk on gorgeously green grass.’ Alliteration is when words that are close to each other begin with the same letter. It makes the reader feel that the poem has more of a rhythm to it. 5.REPETITION: I used ‘repetition’ my poem titled ‘Peace’. I repeated the word ‘from’ many times to make it clear that the people at Jason's new school are from many different places. It makes it clear to the reader that Jason's new school in an international school. 6.IMAGERY: I used ‘imagery’ in my poem titled ‘Mother Nature’. I said in my poem ‘Then claps her hands for thunder’. When you clap your hands together it sometimes sounds so loud that it sounds like thunder. It gives the reader the impression that ‘Mother Nature’ claps her hands so hard that she creates thunder. You can see the thunder in your mind.
