There was a man I knew
Not in person

But by his

actions

drive and

dedication

I can only hope 

to be like every part of him

He fought for world peace

He truly believed we all belonged

here together in the same place

with the same rights

with the same means

He sacrificed everything

in a sense his whole life

He wouldn’t have done things differently

He wouldn’t have known how

Peace is what he wanted

Peace is what I hope we can all find

The fight is pointless
In the end there are never winners

For once the battle is over

You stand alone

Most often without those you love

So peace is the answer

Why don’t you just get along
