Society is broken
The pillars and foundation of morality is inept
Look to the middle east and you can expect
Bloodshed and rivers of blood so red
That they make the bones quiver
When will peace be delivered
To burning towns and cities.
People offer their pities.
Then they forget
We as a collective whole have a human debt
To the people lost in war
Listen as men, women and children roar
In the bleak night
Aside rubble in fright
Nothing is done
Nothing is achieved
Nothing is won
This modern age begun
With such optimism
Yet war is still a decision
To be made
Peoples screams can still be heard in air raids
Peoples lives are still at stake
Peoples lives they still take
The earth shakes beneath innocent people
Not because of a natural disaster but because of bombs
And people still don't rectify these wrongs.
I hope to live long and see a day where peace is sung throughout the land
A place where its finally safe and humanity walks hand in hand.
