We Will Have Peace - Poem by Emma Beverage

We will have peace

When each and every one of us,
completely understands…
That there is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When the President says
that you must kill…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When your commanding officer
says that you must torture…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When someone belongs
To another race…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When someone expresses love
but it does not look the same as mine…
There is no justification,
For abusing another human being.

When your loved one lies and cheats…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When gossips lie and ruin your reputation…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When you feel disrespected,
want to start a brawl…
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When someone is poor
not in your “class”
There is no justification,
for abusing another human being.

When we completely understand
this concept and practice it in our lives
We will have peace.
