CHILDREN ARE STARS OF PEACE
Dear Children, you were born with loving hearts
And in them star-seeds of peace
You are the future, you are life,
You do not want to die in wars
Like some of your fathers and mothers
Smart children, armed
With smart-phones and computers
You will shoot your peace messages
All over the Middle East
All over our global village
Your rapid fingers will bring us
What we failed to bring you –
A world where not one gun is fired
A world where each child
Is a twinkling star of Peace
Well-fed and smiling at life.
LES ENFANTS SONT DES ÉTOILES DE PAIX
Chers enfants, vous êtes nés avec des cœurs aimants
Et en eux des graines de paix.
Vous êtes l’avenir, vous êtes la vie
Vous ne voulez pas mourir dans les guerres
Comme certains de vos pères et de vos mères
Enfants brillants, vous enverrez vos étoiles de paix
Par vos smartphones et ordinateurs
Partout au Moyen-Orient
Et dans tout notre village mondial.
Vos doigts rapides nous apporteront
Ce que nous n’avons pas pu vous apporter –
Un monde où aucune arme n’est tirée
Pour tuer des pères, des mères et des enfants –
Un monde où chaque enfant est une étoile de paix
Bien nourri et souriant à la vie !
