If

If short poem

Photo by douglemoine

If you preach peace,
beat no war drum,
if you want peace
promote no conflict,
if you love peace,
create no division,
if you preach peace,
spread no hate,
if you preach peace,
promote no racial
superiority,
if you preach peace,
see good in others,
if you preach peace,
force yourself
not on others,
if you preach peace,
see religion as a road
not the terminus,
if you preach peace,
take peace to
your neighbor,
if you teach peace,
make your home
peaceful,
if you want peace,
to peace to your
neighbors.
If you preach peace
respect another man’s
space,
accommodate contrary
opinion,
kill not for faith,
destroy not for political
interest,
swindle not for
economic gain.
