My Stand for Peace

If I really cared for peace
And stood for what I believe
Where would I have been
When the trains left for Auschwitz?

Where was I as Stalin purged
Or when his tyranny ruled
Where was I as the barriers
Like the Berlin Walls were built?

If I believed in peace
Would I stand with Rachel Corrie?
Or stop the oppression in Darfur
Or call a stop to Guantanamo?

So Where was I all this time?
So full of my peace imaginings
I will tell you where I was
I was here, trying not to see.

I looked away as the trains left
What was that to do with me?
I did not stand with dear Gaza
It was nothing to do with me.

I said nothing as they bombed Iraq
It was nothing to do with me
I did not see those orange overalls
They were nothing to do with me.

And all this time they murdered
And tortured, and bombed and shot
for my country, in my name,
as my brothers suffered and died.

So if I really cared for peace
Where would I stand today?

We are the Peace

Without words the world is dumb
without hope the world is numb
we have words
we have hope
We are the Peace to come.
