Guns undermine humanity.
Weaponry destructs the goodness in people.
What peace is there in killing?
What democracy lies in bombing?
In this Twenty-First-Century,
We are not limited
To chairs and tables
To settle our differences.
Talk is a virtue
When it achieves a common good.
We are geared by technology and knowledge
To advance civility.
We are better
Than our pride and fears
Can turn us into–
For humanity is the very vessel of compassion
Any war makes peace
