UNLESS A COWARD
I always love peace.
Not anyone loves war, unless a coward.
The call for war is never my choice.
I am not brave enough, but I call for peace.
In the homeland of promise, I remain my quest.
In my quest for peace, I promise to save.
And I am not to beg independence be granted.
If I do so, I recognize your law.
My own law teaches kindness,
So as yours teaches compassion.
I am thought not to hate,
Never were you thought to kill.
I don’t claim to be unconquered,
But it is what I believed.
Like people have live,
Their traces never fade.
Written in the pages of civilizations,
I read, my forefathers have sworn.
Never in war you when you return.
The least is peace you shall be born.
I have my name, I love it most.
Don’t ever chance it to one that’s false.
If I am a ‘current’ don’t make it a ‘lake’
And don’t call me, as ‘enemies’ did.
I am not moron, but I am tanned.
My skin is a symbol that I am.
Loving my own is not just for freedom.
But a mere reminder, I am not for war.
So leave, take your arms with you.
Don’t keep your hand, grip me as foe.
I will not fight you, but I need to defend.
My blood never shall I wasted to kill you.
