One earth, one land, shared by all (poem for peace)

Dmites forest 447
Peace is around us

One earth, one land, shared by all

One earth, one land, shared by all
One people under the living sun
One chance to hear harmony’s call
Echoed from when the world begun

One life is ours, a journey we share
From creation until our time ends
And in that time, it is for us to care
To love, to laugh and to make friends

Too short for anger, too precious to hate
Our lives should be a gift to mankind
And as for forgiveness, it is never too late
To seek peace and to open our mind

To share our ways, to hold out our hand
To not let hate win, nor hide behind fear
One people, one life, one earth and one land
Let us reach out and let others draw near
