A

In 
quest 
for 
peace 
I 
knock 
fromdoor 
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 
man'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 
lore 
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.

Teach 
our 
leaders 
to 
hold 
back 
Ballistic 
missiles
that 
our 
soldiers 
may 
share... 
fantastic 
smiles.
Make 
our 
differences 
the 
instrument 
of 
peace,
where 
there 
is 
hatred, 
let 
tolerance 
increase.

Help 
us 
to 
give 
peace 
a 
chance 
to 
blossom
in 
the 
oasis 
of 
love...the 
fountain 
of
freedom.
Let 
the 
street 
be 
filled 
with 
blooms, 
not 
bombs;
Let's 
have 
more 
temples 
and 
not... 
tombs.
