Mostly elusive

I was happily making my lunch this afternoon when two 'god botherers' knocked on my door, and for all their message of hope and faith in the Bible and its stories they didn't appear content. They asked me whether I thought war would continue in the future. Affirmative. They asked me whether I thought people would remain the same in most aspects. Affirmative. They asked me if I thought happiness was possible. Affirmative. They asked me about hope and what I believed in. I looked beyond them at the sky and trees and spoke to them about peace, but not the peace from war, death and destruction that they were so intent on discussing. I merely meant a deep and inner personal contentment that is transitory and mostly elusive.
