We know, Peace is more than the absence of war
And Love is much more than the absence of hate
And Yes, Life is so much more than the absence of death
So much more . . .
How long would it take for us to say,
“Every Human Life is Sacred” in every tongue,
Seven and a half billion times?

And, in that time, No one could die
At the hand of another?
No fair, filling the air with bullets, rockets and bombs
Staining the walls of houses of worship
With the blood of those who simply came to worship
Death in the name of GOD? The King? The temporary ruler?
Will it take GOD to tell us when to STOP? Or,
