If my words brought peace

If my words brought peace

If they raised us all to action

But words cannot bring peace

We cannot solve our strange inaction

I would explain how pain begets pain

How wounded people wound people

That to improve your own life

The lives of others must see improvement

That by giving is how we receive

That dignity, cleanliness, and education

Make your neighbors better neighbors

That all countries are our neighbors

And all people are universes

Never before seen or experienced

But all containing a superabundance

Of stars and mysteries
