Wage not war, on those you love,
Disarm your words, ungird your armor.
Do not battle your heart’s desire,
For with it may come, defeat
In times of trial, emotions rampant,
Let not slanders be used as weapon,
Blunt, harsh thoughts all fears allay,
That again, in peace, spirits may meet.
For in our folly, if anger win,
Our future soon unvarying victims
Betray the pain, rejoice the spirit,
Deny in passing, no sorrows to greet.
Pledge resolve you possess the power,
Unite your thoughts, your prayers, and honor
For in you rests, once thought dormant,
A stronger tomorrow, anger’s fate bittersweet.
