Sing Peace

9














If they hear a song,
would they put
their rifles down?
Would they hear
their people scream?
“Enough war!
Give us peace,
love, and dignity!”




If they hear a song,
would they stop
arguing on pointless issues
of indifferences?
For reality is, we breathe the same air.
Diversity, life matters–
More than race;
More than culture; more than faith.




If they hear a song,
would they let
the nomadic children and mothers of Syria
go on with their journey to safety?
For more than sympathy, they need empathy.
Regardless of the color of our skins,
none amongst us wants bullet in our heads;
nor on our plates; neither in our dreams.




If they hear a song,
would they bury
their nuc armories to eternity?
For those weapons, aren’t only threats to humanity;
but their evident
to how we yield
to pride;
to fears; to greed.






But now matter how ill
it may seem,
this inflicted world can still heal:
If we will.
We just need
to sing peace
in our hearts;
in our thoughts; and in our deeds.

That just because
I can’t list–
it means,
I don’t.

It’s just that
I only have
ten fingers
and ten toes–

. . . and they’re not enough,
to tell
how much I love you so.
