by Robert Alan Silverstein


One is for the love, that I'm feeling in my heart.
Two is reaching out, and helping love to start.
Three is for a message, a message that I care.
Four is for the courage, to spread it everywhere.
Five's a helping hand, for those who are in need.
Six is for the joy, that comes with each good deed.
Seven is accepting, that we've many points of view.
Eight is for the patience, to work our problems through.
Nine's a wish for freedom, that would bring us all release.
Ten is for this dream, of a world all joined in peace.
