Peace starts with me



Peace be with you.
To greet another.
Instead of ‘Hello’.
Peace be with you.

Fear handicaps peace.
Fear of another religion.
Fear of another race.
Let us overcome fear.

Peace starts with me.
A heart must have kindness.
Anger cannot rule.
Each day a work in progress.

It is easy to start a war.
Lash out without thinking.
Let anger take control.
Stop this. Learn from mistakes.

Let not anger fester.
Instead let kindness in.
Do acts of kindness.
Think kind thoughts always.

Peace be with you.
Can I start this today?
What will your answer be?
Peace be with you. I hope.
