Disarm Your Bellicose Heart

by Zachary A. Horn

Disarm
your bellicose
heart.

Quite your
warring
mind.

The cost
of hatred
is too great.

The burden
of violence
too dear.

Do not add
to the cacophony
of sound.

With the
drumbeat
of war.

You will not
earn peace
by violent means.

Nor love
with a hate filled
heart.

Be a peacemaker
in a world
at war.
