Give Peace A Chance

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 some fantastic 
smiles. 
Make our differences the 
instruments 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 bomb;
Let's have more temples 
and not... tombs.
