Love and Peace


“Love and Peace” 

by Derek Felix
We live in a world of tyranny 

On the path to destruction 

Have faith instead of fear in thee 

We must achieve and have more gumption


Overcome the hate and divide 

That hurts and breaks us 

Be more courteous and nice 

Instead of being angry and murderous 


Do what’s right each and every day

Act appropriately and show a kind heart

Stop the antagonism and hurtful words we say

It’s time for a fresh reminder a restart 


Love and Peace 

Isn’t so hard

Love and Peace 

If we all play our part

Love and Peace 

Can make us one 

Love and Peace 

Can make the world fun


Social media isn’t who we really are

Hiding behind computers not showing our face

Step outside and meet me and you’ll discover a star

Using shameful words and labels disgrace the human race


Take a look outside and appreciate the daylight 

Study the uniqueness of nature and a wonderful sky

Walk around and breathe in the wonderful sight

A vacation away taking us from low to high


All we have to do is take in the fresh air 

Take a moment to reflect on what’s real 

And you’ll have no regrets or no tears 

Open our eyes and enjoy how you feel 


Love and Peace

Is needed more than ever

Love and Peace

Is like the wind blowing a feather

Love and Peace 

Can calm you down 

Love and Peace 

Can make you smile instead of frown


I need you to listen and think freely 

It’s important to treat each other better 

Open our minds to a new feeling 

Care for your friends and end the hate forever


We need to come to a resolution 

Without the arguments and fighting 

Put it to work and into fruition 

Be together as Americans portraying a better lighting


Do what’s right over what’s wrong 

Be more tolerant of each other 

Cool down and rock out to a good song 

Spread love to one another 


Love and Peace 

Can be found 

Love and Peace

Is all around 

Love and Peace 

Is needed for survival

Love and Peace 

Demonstrate friendship and revival
