Peace comes not from threat of force,
From fear or wealth, some fragile source.
Peace is found in people whole
And fed and free; when every soul
Has food to eat, a place to sleep,
When we collectively can weep
For all injustice, every loss,
Beyond all superficial gloss.
When we build each other up
And share of every meal and cup,
When we drop arms of every kind,
Maybe then some Peace we’ll find.
Yes, educated, healed, and loved,
We’ll find the Peace we’re dreaming of.
