The world is a lonely place
Bursting with life
Billions of people walk by
And yet we are always alone
Why do we fight so much?
War after war
What will we have fought for
When there will be nothing left anymore
When the only thing you will have won
Are the dead bodies of your soldiers
And the destruction of the world
Is it really worth it?
Your bombs and tanks and guns
You kill millions without even blinking
And cry when your mother dies
Do we even know why we go to war anymore?
There is no reason great enough to justify massacre
You hate them because they’re different
They hate you because you’re different
But in the end aren’t we all just the same
Why can’t we all just co-exist peacefully?
And live together amiably
Let’s teach our children better
Than to be a hero of war
Let’s teach them
To be a hero of peace
I really love history but sometimes it seems that we really don’t learn from our past mistakes. We need to learn that there are better ways to solve problems than to go to war. We just need better verbal communication instead of massacring innocent civilians to prove a point. I’m so tired of reading about death and war and more death- we’re better than this and I believe that we can change if we all try to work together instead of against one another. At the end of the day we’re just people no matter our age, gender, religion, race etc.
