Peace

Don’t close your thoughts to no more war
Living in peace
Caring for each other
Celebrate as one
In a perfect world


Don’t close your eyes to a little child
malnourished
Sitting alone
Too weak to stand
Too sick to smile


Don’t cover your ears to distant footsteps
Leaving their homes
Marching away
No shoes on
Refugees to be


Don’t close your heart to helping others
With mental illness
Suffering in pain
The stress everyday
That never goes away


Don’t close your mind to the people you see
Stuck in poverty
No hopes no dreams
Living every day
Asking for help that never comes their way


Don’t close your thoughts of a new world
No ships to sink
No enemies to hate
No beaches to invade
No country’s wealth to raid
