Practice Peace

CHORUS

Anger only leads to hurt.
Hurt often leads to anger.
Violence is a pestilence,
A dread disease full of danger.

Practice peace, or all we will know is war.
Practice love, or hate will haunt our door.
We all know that we all are children of the earth, circling a star.

Care for one another,   Love those near and far.
Caring Children of the Earth:  Let that be who we are.

The thirst for knowledge
cannot be resisted.
Know that knowledge
is not good or bad.
What we do with it, can get so twisted.
Caring wisdom must light our path.

Practice peace, or all we will know is war.
Practice love, or hate will haunt our door.
We all know that we all are children of the earth, circling a star.

Care for our Mother.  Love those near and far.
Caring children of the earth:  Let that be who we are.

Moving forward, still checking back,
Keeps us moving on our chosen path,
But one step forward and two steps back,
Will never ever make it onto any track.

Practice peace, or all we will know is war
Practice love, or hate will haunt our door.
We all know that we all are Children of the Earth circling a star.

Brothers and sisters,   Love those near and far.
Caring Children of the Earth:   Let that be who we are.
Loving Children of the Earth:   Let that be who we are.
