Give Peace A Chance

In quest for peace 
I knock from door 
to door,
with a bowl full of 
bliss-- my pot is 
not poor.
I ask not for alms but 
for arms strong enough 
to hold the banner 
high...in a terrain so 
tough.

If there is true 
love, there must be true 
hate:
feeds and weed grown in 
the field of 
fate.
Twin Tears, 
easy to undermine, hard 
to understand...
flowing from life's 
fountain to a sinking 
sand.

The universe revolves 
around one sacred 
Sun,
it will never stand still for 
men's gruesome 
gun.
The hands of peace 
shaken, can tame all 
terrors;
war of words can never 
erase human errors.

Lord, we bow before 
you to say gentle 
prayers, 
that you will rule over 
the hearts of 
prank players.
Blame game has made 
the lores of love... 
lame,
teach us to know 
that we cannot all 
be the same.

Open our ears to hear 
cheerless children crying,
give us eyes to see the 
widows wailing, 
dying.
Let loose the flood 
of compassion in our 
hearts,
save our soul, lest war 
tears our world 
apart.
