Oh Peace! Peace, Peace, Peace!

Peace for the old and young Liberians

Peace for the bold and strong Liberians

From River Gee through Grand Bassa to Cape Mount

More peace for all to count

 

Peace in our national election

Peace towards our traditional celebration;

Free from lies, unforgiveness, hatred and corruption

Overflowing with love, forgiveness and reconciliation

Not the violence from tribalism

But the love for true patriotism

 

Election is not for violence of war

Election is not of violence for power

Election is not for violence to fear

Election is not for violence of death

Election is not for violence of revenge to theft

 

Election is for unity and prosperity

From South-eastern Liberia to Nimba with peaceful serenity

Election is for voting for generation’s longevity

Election is for national peace with beautiful harmony

Election is for citizens to enjoy peace so sweet as honey

Election is telling the truth and making good choices not Cunning

 

We find no peace in violence

We find more peace in unity and credence

A peace that sees election as accountability

A peace that feels election as development

A peace that hears the majority as prosperity

A peace that smells democracy as Good Governance

A peace that taste sound leadership as freedom

 

Our vote as a people is our peace

Our vote as a people is for positive and transformational change

From Liberia’s Mangroves swamp to the Wologessi Mountain in Lofa County

Our vote is not for greed, betrayal or nepotism

Our vote is to protect our young girls from violence and rape

Our vote is to empower our young men to become self-reliant

Our vote is to create equal opportunity for all Liberians

To live in a Peaceful Liberia that belongs to Liberians

To all Liberian Youth during every moment of national election. There must be no violence. Let’s stand for Peace. God bless Liberia!
