Optimism for Peace

Life surprises us all the time

What we expect

Might not be what it seems

*

Life’s disguises may fall  to the side

What we protect

Might be stronger machines

Beyond all our nightmares

A kind star gleams

*

Optimism for Peace

Should leave no question

A promise we develop

To answer our dreams

**

Life surprises us all the time

What we expect

Might be too discrete

*

My key advisor has long been denied

What you protect

Might be the leader of a team

Past those that are fair

An evil eye gleams

*

Stare right back

And Say what you mean

Stand up for your values

Like they’ve never been seen

*

Optimism for Peace

Should leave no question

A promise we develop

to answer our dreams

*

Can’t be scared of the nightmare

Keep pushing through

*

We should share ways to care

A better world for us too

*

Like declaring love not war

The best thing to do

If life’s not fair

I’ll care more

For me & all of you

**

Life surprises us all the time

What we expect

Might reflect on our screens

*

Future sunrises should never have to hide

What to protect

Might show in movie scenes

Beyond the unreal glare

A chance for us gleams

*

Optimism for Peace

Should leave no question

A promise we develop

Answers our dreams

Love
