Perhaps It's Time

Although it may be difficult sometimes

in this world I’m trying to create...

I will not acknowledge your anger with anger...

I will not return your hate...with hate.

 

If you choose to bully me

I will not bully back.

Nor will I cower in the face of fear

for courage...I do not lack.

 

I believe in human rights

the rights of everyone to be free

and I gladly lend my voice to the chorus

of peace and harmony.

 

Hate has tried to rule the world

from every demagogue to tsar.

When you take a look at history...

how’s that worked out so far?

 

So although it may be difficult sometimes

in this world I’m trying to enhance...

I will return your hate with love...

 

it’s the only way peace has chance!
