All it would take to make world peace
Would be for every person in the world to
It is that simple, and that hard, a feat.
When we choose to cede to our fears
We make our fears manifest in the world.
In effect, our faith goes to our fears
When we choose to believe in them
Over God, love, or peace.
So the very reasons we deny the possibility
Of world peace becomes our reality instead
And we live with anger, hate, or mistrust
When we want hope, joy or security.
So the question is, what fears must you give up
What objections must you overcome in your own mind
At the thought of living in harmony with others?
What would it take for you to choose world peace
As the way you will live your life?
