Lay down your arms

Lay down your arms,
to stop senseless

Lay down your arms,
to let flowers sprout
peacefully and beautifully

Lay down your arms,
to let the sky to be blue
again, without smoke
from war

Lay down your arms,
to let our ears hear
the choruses of birds,
and the sound of wind,
rather than the sounds
of guns and explosions

Lay down your arms,
to stop tears of sorrow
from flowing down
the cheeks of children
and women

Lay down your arms,
to let the children
have a bright future
to believe in

Lay down your arms,
to cease blocking
the passageway for blessings
on us from the Heavens
