Can Peace Be Obtained?

Can peace be obtained?
That is the question
Is it a state of mind?
What happens when we embark on this journey of finding peace within ourselves?
Does the journey change when we want our environment to be peaceful?
People of color are surrounded by constant oppression especially Black folk in this country
Can we dream of peace with this knowledge?
Can we dream of peace with this truth?
Is peace obtainable when there is constant oppression?
Is it brave to dream about it or is it even wise?
Is there no other way but to work towards a utopia?
We may not feel true peace it in our lifetime
But we have to try right?
Or is this poem full of pessimism?
Is there anyone that can give me answers?
Is there anyone that can serve as a guide?
