Heinous crimes
So much shooting
In this way
The love polluting

Guns used to kill
Innocent lives they still
When will man
See the plan
And stop?

Fear and hatred
Is nothing sacred?
Stop and listen:
“Love thy neighbor”
Words to savor.

Create love where there is hate
Do it now; do not wait.
Only in this way
Will you see the day
When man is free.

Carry on
The past is gone
See only right
Search for the light.

Peace will come
A gentle hum
When all do know
The inner glow
Of love.
