Give Peace a Chance

                         Everything in this world deserves a chance to live,
                      but in the real world some would rather take then give.
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                          Too many innocent angels have been taken away,
                        then more innocent are left to wonder why and pray.
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                           What makes some people think they are better then me,
                                  God created us all equal and his son set us free.
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                            Children are killing children there is no excuse,
                               and it is never right to say I win,you lose.
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                            We will never understand the evil that we see,
                           when there is no difference between you and me.
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                             I pray that one day we can dance the same dance,
                                            but until that day comes,
                                             GIVE PEACE A CHANCE

                             written June 10,2013 for Give Peace a Chance contest
