STREET GANGS


Where there is little love there can be no peace
If hearts are at war, thus begins the warring of nations afar
Only with peace of the heart can peace start
With its absence we have the beginnings, of hate and of war
The ultimate cause of destruction among men
Evil hearts kill, their friends and their for

Bombs and fire can kill all life

Strife in the heart can kill the spirit

Why not try to love the people of this world

Some are our foe with a poisoined soul

The warring hearts who poison their souls

We need not hate, but have freedom and peace

It is hard to love, our friends and our foe.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
