I believe in the weapon of smiles
that brings men together, melts the walls,
secures hope, paves to love.
I believe in the weapon of peace
that unties the chains and is a
wealth of nations.
If you believe in war and
prefer suspicion to hope,
danger to serenity,
division to unity,
hatred to conscience,
if anger is strength for you, and
disagreement a curse,
if you're a stranger to empathy
and rejoice the pain of your neighbor,
if you're a convert to law of revenge,
bite for a bite, eye for eye, stone for stone,
if you as much suffer
the disease of unforgiveness,
then come dance with me and let me show you
the steps of togetherness and
harmony, the flood of emotions
that spring from your inner core
buried under the war drums.
