Let there be peace on earth

This Christmas I have just one prayer
Let there be peace on earth

Sounds so simple
Sounds so easy
Let there be peace on earth

No guns
No pain
No death
No hurt
Let there be peace on earth

Children play
Adults love
Let there be peace on earth

Laughter
Forgiveness
Debate
Compromise
Let there be peace on earth

Love's accepted
Everyone valued
Let there be peace on earth

This Christmas I have just one prayer
Let there be peace on earth

Xxxxxxxx

This poem was written for the real roads prompt "peace on earth"; it's referring to the horrors of the Newtown massacre and the pain of hate in all societies.  It comes from the heart; let there be peace on earth.
