Dreams of Peace

   

So many souls with different faces 
In one world, but from many places

We are all the same; can't you see? 
Regardless of heritage; you and me

Look for the person inside, not out 
THAT is what this life is all about

A choice between good or bad to make 
Each person decides which road to take

Those decisions create our society today 
On a self destructing path; sorry to say

Too much evil lurks in this life 
Creating heartache and widespread strife

Prejudice and greed out of control 
The results of such, take their toll

The wars and crime a direct result 
Our land destroyed only to be rebuilt

We all need to change for the world to endure 
Love one another; that is the cure

Reach out a helping hand to others 
Strangers, friends, acquaintances, brothers

Put aside those petty differences and hate 
Find a common ground in which to relate

I dream of a world where peace is the norm 
People working together to weather the storm

Here is to the hope that one day it comes true 
A land of harmony for me and for you
