On this day, like any other,  

soldiers are killing and dying,  

arms merchants are selling their wares,  

missiles are aimed at your heart,  

and peace is a distant dream.





Not just for today, but for each day,  

let’s sheathe our swords, save the sky   

for clouds, the oceans for mystery  

and the earth for joy.  


Let’s stop honoring the war makers

and start giving medals for peace.

On this day, like any other,

there are infinite possibilities to change

our ways.


Peace is an apple tree heavy with fruit,

a new way of loving the world.
