Can You Do It?

Are you brave enough
To lay down your arms?
Are you strong enough
To walk away from Power?

Are you smart enough
To admit that you know nothing?
Do you really want it all?
- Enough to turn “mine” into “ours”?

. . . They’ll tell you that attack
. . . Is the best form of defence.
. . . They’ve got it wrong,
. . . And I’ll tell you this:
. . . That one was made up
. . . By those who profit from War.
. . . Attack is just the most
. . . Offensive form of cowardice.

Are you rich enough
To share the little that you’ve got?
Are you selfish enough
To want Want and Need to cease?

Are you strong enough
To let your life be ruled by Love?
Are you really brave enough?
Brave enough to live in Peace?
