Where does aggression come from but from fear?
We are afraid of losing something dear
And thus defend ourselves from all assault,
Yet in so doing, we commit a fault,
Since violence is never justified
Unless all peaceful means have first been tried
To gain those ends to which we have a right
With all care taken to avoid a fight.
The way to peace is generosity,
The opposite of animosity;
It’s learning to be kind to all our kind,
Our motives being harmoniously aligned
Because we hold no principle above
Each one’s innate entitlement to love.
