The Warriors of Peace
by Jay Ross
All the Warriors of Peace who have come have tried
to say it doesn’t matter who’s on which
Who is the Muslim, the Christian, the
Yellow race? Red race? Red state or Blue?
It is only through fear that you're
lead toward hate.
There's no fear in love; and it's never too late.
They offer their message for 'those
who have ears'.
And for those who listen, the message rings clear.
Not one child is born on all of this
who is not blessed, as you, from the moment of birth.
Not in all of the time that ever has
and not… for as long as eternity lasts.
And each, now, is doing what they think
to be best.
Though, some often don’t see things the same as
(But) To them you must listen, their
stories to hear.
Let your mind be your eyes. Let your heart be your ears.
Discuss how you differ in thought,
word and deed,
but all share the same hopes, the same fears and needs.
Seek broader perspectives, because
from the right view
what is best for your neighbor is what's best for you
You all want to be free to make your
You all want your hopes, fears and needs to have voices.
You all want your children to be healthy
You all want your home to be your ‘Sacred Space’.
You all need good food and clean water
You need clean air to breathe and a clear mind to think.
You need peace in your heart, your
mind and your soul
to be able to see… we're all parts of one 'Whole'.
And, what’s best for one…
is what’s best for the other.
As the ‘Family of Mankind’…you are
sisters and brothers.
So find peace within. To your neighbor
the chance to find peace in the place where they live.
Don’t try to force it; just allow
it to flourish.
Plant seeds of hope… and then, with love, nourish.
Your world is your garden; and you
share what you’ve grown
as you reap in the harvest of the seeds you've all sown.
So sow your seeds wisely, with love
and with care.
Tomorrow comes the harvest…
What do you want to share?
