SPREAD THE PEACE

Life is hard, no doubt about it.
Money’s short and patience thin.
Politicians running rampant…
Why’d I ever vote for him?

Can I really make a difference?
Can I find the time and strength?
I’m just me, not rich nor famous.
Can I really create peace?

Countries’ fighting over money
Or over some religious bit
On their exclusive key to Heaven.
Too bad your key doesn’t fit.

All the while, people starving…
Thirty thousand just today.
Ask yourself if not now, when
Will it be time to say,

“Enough’s enough!
No war is holy!”
Tell me which side
Does God choose?

And once we know
Which side she’s chosen,
Show the weapons
She would use.

It’s time to stand for what we stand for.
Take a stance and rise above…
Above the judging, hate and anger.
Give forgiveness; come from love.

It’s time for caring... not despairing.
Life is all too short, we know.
Sow the seeds of love and kindness.
Nurture them and watch ‘em grow!

Stoke the fires of your passions.
Support creation’s need to be.
Take the time to watch the sun rise.
Then give thanks and feel the peace.

Yes, it’s time to band together.
Time for each to do our part.
Plant the seeds of peace in music
And in every peace of art.

Paint it, write it, sing it, shout it!
Dance it, prance it… who cares how?
Spread the peace across the planet…
Pick your peace, and do it now!

Spread the peace for all the children.
Speak your peace for those who can’t…
For Mother Earth and all her creatures,
And for the seas' inhabitants.

Flash the peace sign to your brother,
To your neighbor and your boss…
To the soldiers and your mother
For there’s no time to be lost!

Spread the peace to your coworkers.
Spread it thick or spread it thin;
To the county code enforcers,
Your in-laws and all your kin…

To the cop who pulls you over,
And your neighbor’s barking dog…
Time to practice our forgiveness
And align ourselves with God.

What we put out comes back to us
In more ways than we can know.
Plant the seeds of peace in children.
Teach them how to make it grow!

Find your joy and give forgiveness,
Nurture goodness with your strength.
Time is truly of the essence…
Time has come to spread the peace.

You might try a little harder
To see other’s points of view.
You may choose to pay it forward
When a good thing comes to you.

Yes, it’s time to band together.
Time for each to do our part.
Plant the seeds of peace in music
And in every person’s heart.

Paint it, write it, sing it, shout it!
Dance it, prance it… Show them how.
Say your peace across the planet…
Spread the peace, and DO IT NOW!
