A Time for Peace


It is a time for peace

Let us make it our business

one at a time or in unison

to once and for all

rid the world of hatred

and violence erase.


Be still and listen to your heartbeat

for it is the same

in everyone’s chest.


We all need it inside of us

in order to exist.


So let this one

of many things

we share in common

drive the manifest

and put our hearts to the test

let each beat you hear

remind you of another soul like you

and let love insist

to keep its home

in each and every heart

which indeed is our own.
