I want world peace now.
Now is the time, and it starts with me
It starts with children, who taunt and ‘play’ for fun
It starts with adults who point fingers and judge.
It starts with a word. Think before your speak…because that thought starts with intention.
Forget what is said of the road to hell.
Start with your intention. Let it carry you.
Center your goals for today and stop pondering
all that you must do in reaction to yesterday.
Start with love and stop reacting to hate. Respond to vitriol with love. Return to a place of peace and love in your hurt when the building is burning down with hate, panic, or just plain chaos.
Start with love. Let it remain, let it be your home and your escape. Someone may just follow your example.
