Peace 

I am firm
In my belief
Though people get heated
About different views
They can come together
To make the right change
In goodwill and harmony
If they only try
But if they cannot make change
Then find some calm
Because life is too short
To argue and moan
About what we cannot change
Let’s take some
Peace to the grave
And have serenity
Now

    What is the use of whining and complaining. One sets the course and seek ways to accomplish great things at minimal costs and efforts. Life can then be most rewarding!
