I believe deeply that human beings should live in peace. The idea for this poem came to me.

Shut your eyes and pretend you don't see,

Block your ears to the crying sound.

All of us are part of humanity,

And someday, we're heavenly bound.

 

Stuff yourselves and overeat,

What good is that?

Tell lies and cheat,

So what?

 

Days will still come,

Some sunny, some filled with rain.

You'll hear the beating of a drum,

It is a call for you to ease the pain.

 

It is time for all to pursue peace,

It is time for love to increase.

It is time to understand, to tolerate,

To say, this is our land, away with the hate.
