We can pursue peace
And put down our weapons
But love does not follow directly
We can act kindly
Persuaded by neighborly norms
But love is not the given result
We can wait patiently
And not vent frustration at others
But love is not guaranteed


If we love
Peace will follow
If we love
Kindness comes
If we love
Patience happens
If we love
All will be well
