Peace Of Man - Poem by Suzy Kassem

Greet each man with words of love
And peace,
And a dove will be placed
On an olive tree.
Leave a man with feelings
Of betrayal
Or envy,
And a dove gets shot
Off the olive tree.
Greet each man with peace,
And leave each man with love.
Ask yourself -
One more enemy,
Or one more dove?
Always choose love.
It's time for everybody to
Speak love.
Let's fill the trees with doves,
And spread the leaves of love.
Always add
And never subtract
Another peace of man
From the olive tree.
