A Poem of Peace
By Patrick Schiess
Why do we choose to fight?
We should be loving and caring for others
We must join and unite together
For we are all sisters and brothers
There are people who want revenge
And some people just want pain
We must stop this madness now
Before things get to insane
If we look at what we’ve done
The violence is off the chart
We can no longer deny it or run
Anger and hate have split us apart
But we still have a fighting chance
To reunite ourselves with love
We just have to look inside ourselves
And listen to our father above
If we could love as one
The world would be a better place
There would be no wars or fighting
And no hate of gender or race
Why is there so much pain?
Why are some people just cruel?
