One

Raffi sings of
One light one sun
but bigger and broader
We are one people
one world

No matter where
You call your home
when your family hurts
you feel the pain
when you are sick
you ache
when guns are at your door
you fear

Why can’t
the great powerful they
understand
that we are one
that I am more
like you
no matter where you are
than all the differences
in all of the politics
in all the world

Can’t peace
be as simple
as a cup of tea?
