I Am Going to try Peace
Gonna lay my head down in the sand,
let the wind blow over my face.
Gonna render my body to the land,
and give it my sweet tears to taste.
Gonna lay my sword down on the soil,
I am not going to swing it no more.
I have nothing to show for all the toil,
been stalemated “settling the score.”
Gonna put my hands behind my back,
and let the will of heaven flow.
Pray for some mercy to put me on track,
to refresh a weary and parched soul.
Going to pick up a staff to hold instead,
and try to walk a mile in bare feet
Gonna listen to what history has said,
and pound my drum to a different beat.
Hold words in my mouth of a different plan,
and learn a whole different speech.
Gonna hold them to action as best as I can.
This time I gonna try PEACE!
