Let it Be Love

There is already an excess of discord

On this spinning globe we call our home,

I have contributed my fair share of chaos

So if I offer anything, let it be peace.

There are already tears cascading like raindrops

Across the ruins of destitute landscapes,

If I have caused one soul pain, it is one too many

So if I must give anything, let it be hope.

There are already hateful words etched on walls

In a world diseased by power and control

I have allowed anger to win over softness

So if I must convey anything, let it be kindness.

There is already a looming shroud of loneliness

Hovering over the isolated roads we all wander

I have sacrificed joy for the familiarity of despair

So if I must leave anything, let it be love.
