There will be no peace,
Unless there are no lies.
There will be no love,
Unless we try to understand each other.
We can talk forever without saying a truth.
We can speak of hope,
But let hope slip away.
We can laugh together,
And keep war at bay.
There will never be peace,
Without songs of joy and faith.
Although volumes of poetry will be written,
The world can never truly have peace,
Until all people are treated with respect and love.
