Collective Minds Revolution for World Peace
When we raise a child with love and compassion
Then that child will grow up with love
In his or her heart and soul,
With the compassion to be kind and help others,
This is the beginning of world peace.
To have love and compassion within
Is to know peace, and the only way
To teach others to acquire these same
Qualities is to share with them
Our thoughts and kindness.
By coming together and sharing thoughts
Of love for all and a desire for world peace,
something wonderful happens, there is growth
And a new power of force is created,
The power of collective minds.
It takes one person to light a lantern,
Which means to empower and enlighten
Others to work for the good of all, and soon
There is a revolution of collective minds,
Praying for the same thing, world peace.
A new kind of revolution begins
That is built by love, not hatred,
Acted upon by kindness, not war,
Supported by compassion, not malice,
And the belief that peace is possible.

This verse was inspired by Join The Revolution by Tony DeLorger
“When love is all there is in thought,
not blame, not vengeance or malice,
then there can be no contention, no war, no hatred,
and thoughts may return to creativity, sharing
and a compassionate world of peace.”
– Tony DeLorger
