Make Cupcakes Not War

June 27, 2008
By Emily Smith, Durand, MI

Stop the noise! It's noise pollution.
Shattered eardrums tell the tale
Broken eyes blinded from sight
Will learn to love the dark of day.

But these, they are the lucky ones
Not to see the broken world
Not to see the hate it brings
Nor the fighting nor the war.

I've been told so many times
Violence is not the answer
If it's not, then why are we
So content to pick our fights?

Battle it out with our bare hands
Fight with our raised voices
Where's the peace we all wanted?
Who's the one that's searching ?

Where's the love anymore?
Loves a cause worth fighting for.
We can fight together hand in hand
To make our world right again.
