Peace Before War

Peace we seek throughout our lives

For peace there has to be compromise

Politicians fail, nations go to war

Brave people bleed and die

Because the weak refuse to realise

It takes great courage to compromise

It may be hard, not an easy ride

To try to understand the other side

But for the sake of peace you have to try

It is in your interest to compromise

And only when all avenues have been explored

Then and only then you should think of war
