Remember peace


For withoutpeace, there is war,
Gunning down what we sweat for,
Exchanging blows and vows,
Brother and brother up in knives against each other,
Fellow countrymen sowing seeds of grudges,
Spreading it like buttercup to young generation,

Youth benefiting drugs instead of peace,
Some facilitating conflicts to boot out peace,
Leaving us in abject poverty and confusion,
Making our country cursed,

Let it be known that peace begins with me,
It begins with you,
Together we can make a difference,
For with peace, there is joy,
