War Is Over (If You Want It)

Listen to a reading of “War Is Over (If You Want It)”:

War is over
If you want it

War is over
If you want the health of your people more than global domination,
War is over
If you want everyone’s prosperity
more than you want to be richer than others,
War is over
If you want peace more than the illusion of security,
War is over

War is over
If you want to move forward more than you want your team to triumph,
War is over
If you want to get the things you want more than you want the glory,
War is over
If you want things to be right more than you want the story of being wronged,
War is over

War is over
If you want happiness more than you want to win,
War is over
If you want connection more than you want ambitious achievements,
War is over
If you want this moment more than you want your future fantasies (that will always fail to satisfy even if they do come true),
War is over

War is over
If you want to relax and repair more than you want to defend the story of yourself,
War is over
If you want to seek understanding more than you want to win the argument,
War is over
If you want to love more than you want to shield yourself from future grief,
War is over

War is over
If you want your sanity more than your reputation,
War is over
If you want to be loved more than you want to be alone,
War is over
If you want what’s in the highest interest
more than you want what’s in your self-interest
War is over
If you want to remove the blocks to health more than you want anything else,
War is over
If you want it
Now
