Why War, not Peace?
War brings sorrow, misery and death Killing of a nation’s children women and men Tears falling on people’s cheeks Wishing for a better way to live Canada, US, Europe separated by the great Atlantic Where can they go to get away from this panic Packing their bags, waving their land goodbye As it will forever remain in their hearts with a heavy sigh Another land is now called home Where new beginnings are starting to take form Why not peace? Why choose the weapons to release? Is it worth to bury all the bodies For the satisfaction of one’s hobbies? Guns and weapons all around Scaring even the flowers that want to grow on this bloody ground Loving, caring, helping are all hard actions to demonstrate But choose not and human eyes will show only hate Show your face, sweet harmony Come help the nation exist fearlessly Let’s make a change, stop being their victims Starting a new life away from their rhythms Stop tolerating what others seem to like Be mindful that you can spend a life so dreamlike I am not here to tell stories But to explain nations’ worries Nobody is safe, nobody can avoid fear Although everyone can try with more calmness to appear I say no more It’s up to you, God’s children, to end this war and show peace forevermore.
