The Power of Love

Michael Peach

Hatred is on the march,
Destruction’s drawing near.
So, come, let’s set our hearts
Against the Reign of Fear.

There is no other way
To end the vicious rub
Of "be killed or kill today"
Than through the Power of Love.

Now this may sound naive;
"Utopian!" you might roar.
Yet Love alone – perceive –
Transcends old Darwin’s Law.

The day is nearing fast
When life on Earth will cease,
If we don’t meet our task
To bring the world to Peace.
