the people we hate most
are the ones we have not met
whose minds we can read
we must kill them all

Very provocative Jefferson, 🙂

Hello I have added it to the peace collaboration but I was not sure if you wanted it there or not…please let me know thanks
August 22, 2016 at 11:12 am
Hi, this is not my poem, but I am assuming that Jefferson would like it added 🙂
August 23, 2016 at 7:53 am
Thanks Judy I am holding off on adding for now as we are looking for pieces that promote peace…if Jefferson has something to add to the collaboration he is welcome to add in the comments

I agree 🙂

If showing the insanity of war isn’t promoting peace what is? I don’t write unrealistic sweet “Let’s all hold hands and sing cumbiou poems.”

Together we are stronger
And our voices will be heard
We want to join together
And make a difference with our words
The world has become divided
So much blood had now been shed
It is time to become united
And find a peaceful way instead
No one wants to live their lives
With a cloud above their head
Wondering if this is the day
That they will end up dead
I thought this earth we were given
Was for all of us to share
Regardless of our differences –
But it seems nobody cares
Wouldn’t it be boring?
If we were all the same
We need tolerance and understanding
And a very open mind
It doesn’t take much effort
To be courteous and kind
Let’s all make the effort
To stand together and be strong
And teach the next generations
That we can all get along!
