If People Want...They Will Have...

If people want to find peace...
If people want to live a life free of untold personalized suffering...
If people want to live with each other instead of against each other...
If people want to have countless moments to enjoy those they love...
If people want to walk the Earth with respect and awe for its boundless beauty...
If people want to end the toil of improving upon misplaced and mistaken ideas...
If people want to smile instead of frown, laugh instead of cry, share instead of hoard...
If people want to nurture and care instead of being right or wrong...
If people want to walk hand-in-hand rather than face each other fist-to-fist...
If people want to know what's true instead of protect what's false...
If people want to forget about forgiveness instead of forgiving but not forgetting...
If people want to die with a celebration rather than a funeral...
If people want to end all fear instead of fear the end...
If people want to see through illusion and live without confusion...
If people want to allow what passes to effortlessly pass...
If people want to shout to the heavens of the joy pervading Earth...
If people want to end their struggle to be other than they are...
If people want to be everything they feel they're not...
If people want to deny that the past can ever define...
If people want to tear down the walls of their darkened despair...
If people want to refuse the tradition and habit of their books...
If people want to be happy as if it didn't depend on their looks...
If people want to live as if the poison of self-interest evaporated...
If people want to witness the end of institutional thought...
If people want to be true individuals...
If people want to walk the mine fields without so many mines...
If people want to breath clear air and drink clean water...
If people want to acknowledge what they've always known...
If people want to admit they've been so sorely mistaken...
If people want to confess how lost they've been...
If people want to end the isolated sense of existence...
If people want to welcome the nameless masses home...
If people want to end all war...
If people want to create a sane society...
If people want to look at each other eye-to-eye...
If people want to trust each other and stop telling petty lies...

People need only look within and reflect on their own lives...
