Peace is an energy, both active and real,
Manifest in Kokyu Ho, acknowledging Gods will.
War is but illusion, a trick of the mind,
Sore is the confusion, unbudo, unkind.
As stillness races forward in the flow of divinity,
As shihonage forms from the symbol of infinity,
The two cuts of the sword, the sword that restores health,
The true sword, invincible, undisturbing cuts self.
And all turns to quiet as faith is returned,
All of the binary code, basics relearned,
For I am nothing and I am one, the empty cup reflects us,
The selfless path of Aikido, the path of peace disects us.
