Open Your Heart To The World

Why is their so much hate? We are all the same, One Human Race and we should learn to get along.

Anger looks back
To a loved one's death,
Battered life, demolished shack,
Hate masters us,
Anger looks back.

Peace beckons forward,
Faith, substanced by hope,
Points beyond the smoking ruins of loss,
Claps brute pain to its heart,
Transformed by alchemy of love,
Calms hate's most bitter throb,
Insist the inescapable--

Without forgiveness,
There will be no peace,
Life's laws require,
An exorcism of hate's past,
A new engendering of love,
Peace partnered by justice,
Will birth the longed-for time.
