Hold onto hope for the future,
Even if the present’s bleak,
and champion the cause of peace,
to bring solace to the weak.
For too long the corrupt and evil
have defined the laws of life.
So champion the cause of peace,
bring light unto this world of strife.
Let not the hate and suffering,
Of which this world has much,
bring champions of the cause of peace
to silence with a hush.
And let not the fear of failure,
let not the fear of death,
take from champions of the cause of peace,
the confidence in their breath.
Let not the naysayers,
who themselves pose no solutions,
dissuade the champions of the cause of peace
from their noble resolution.
And let not the myriad of foes
who oppose this cause of peace,
find in their nefarious designs
any moments of relief.
Look, champions, how few we are!
This fight will not be quick.
Yet the cause itself is heroic,
bringing health unto the sick.
And our utopian ideals are heard,
Our hopes can all be seen.
Our world is borne of visions,
Which in turn are borne of dreams.
So dream on, you champions!
Hold fast to your beliefs –
That the world is full of goodness,
and will one day know just peace
