THE PACIFIST

This is just a simple verse,
With words concise and clear.
Life would be so wonderful,
Without violence and fear.

What a fine world it would be,
If everyone thought like this:
No man strikes another man
And we all live lives of bliss.

I would never kill a man,
Even if it saved my life.
I could never shoot a gun
Nor stab a man with a knife.

Life is much too important,
It means everything to me.
It gives my soul a purpose.
It allows my soul to see.

When it’s time to leave the earth
And when all is said and done,
I’ll be proud I did not kill,
Never once beneath the sun.
