Light them with the glow,
For when the darkness disappears
Then true peace you’ll know.
* * *
There is one thing that all souls crave
The one thing that your life will save
It’s love that keeps you ever striving
Keeps you pushing, trying, driving
Without the fullness in your heart
It’s hard most anything to start
For love’s the thing that fills your cup
Gives you energy to get up
When all you want to do is sleep
When in the darkness you do weep
Why do you have to hunger so?
There’s not a place that you can go
That love’s not there
Perhaps you’re not aware
Some keep it hidden deep inside
When all they have to do is open up their heart
If they would learn love not to hide
Then living life would truly start
It’s easier to hate than love
When someone does you wrong
But cast aside your need to strike
Put down the padded glove
Send forgiveness although it’s hard
The payback comes in spades
When you can love instead of hate
No need for cutting blades
Oh, how the world would surely change
If all could heed these truths
When love is all you choose to see
When you shout it from the roofs.
A soothing salve, a healing balm
When love’s your base, your life is calm.
* * *
See your fear and cast it out
Let not hate roll about and harm you
Let us arm you with love.
The only tool you’ll ever need
