Put Your Guns Down 

Put your guns down stop this fighting all around 

The sound causes an echo of silence 

What do it prove?

What does it acheive? 

That you can shoot a gun with ease 
The breeze smells of fear 

The drains drip with blood cause a flood of tears which pour down the street 
Please greet rather than beat 

Please speak rather than cheat 

Find a balancing sheet so we can all meet in the retreat 
Without violence 

Without animosity 

Without distant from years of hatred 
With love, not hate

Begin to negotiate

And wait, to start to communicate 

without people dictating the answers 
Our voices are more powerful than weapons

Our voices can make a change 

Please don’t leave the world in this grim state and with a dreadful fate.
