“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than I

The monsters of the world are amidst a brutal fight
But then there are people like you and me,
Innocence alight.
It is not in our young minds to fight back
And do what the “bad people” do with
Morals at lack.
I will continue to have faith in humanity
Even through all this insanity.
I will take a deep breath, sweet cool air in my throat,
And my faith will keep me afloat
My quiet prayer is a melody
That sings maybe there
Is a remedy
So why cover our delicate and strong hearts with glass?
Let’s all live as if tomorrow’s our last
Breath, taste, and love
To live the life of precious peace
We smile just dreaming of

At this age, it is hard to comprehend the violence that is going on in this world. We can't control it, but we can control ourselves. Always have hope that all will be alright. We are one with one prayer: peace.
