I'm not afraid to stand and shout "I care,
for my friends and neighbours - everywhere",
as I know we are all truly one great family,
with one common mother astride our genealogy.
Why should we fight and waste so much life,
our common needs are best served without strife
don't poison all this world with toxins that kill
from weapons that make our troubles greater still.
It is only when we come to take a calmer stance,
that we will see all people deserve a second glance,
then we can take away their needs & not their lives,
with cooperation - that's the one way everybody thrives...
