Story

Inspired by Eminem, this song is a call to songwriters to write more peaceful songs.  You don't realize who you affect as a songwriter, singer, artist, role model or public figure until you work with the children who look up to those people and emulate their behaviors. 

Lyrics

So many angry and bitter words
So much talent misused
A position of power abused
I know you have it in you
to write
 
(Chorus):  A song for peace, a song of love
A song so we can rise above
all that's happening, all that we reap
when we fail to sew a song for peace
 
I am of the same disease
when I sometimes fail to see
from another's point of view
but at least I am open to
writing
 
(Chorus)
 
To understand should be high in demand
To be for peace instead of being angry
As long as we try to cradle light in this night and write
 
(Chorus)
