–dedicated to Gandhi and King

 

wage a war of peace

a war of peaceful ways

a war of peaceful means

 

let violence be validation of violent

let murder be mandate of murderers

let bloodstains stain bloody, blood soaked hands

 

but let conquerors conquer by means of peace.

 

wage a war of peace

a war of peaceful ways

a war of peaceful means

 

let legacies of brave be legacies of peace

let ways of strong be peaceful ways

let days of wise be peaceful days

 

to the end so it is to always seek.

 

let violent be violent

let murderers be murderous

let clamorers clamoring conflict clamor

 

but let wise, let strong, let brave,

let courageous, conquerors champion

the ways of peace
