Give Peace a Chance

There can be no peace -
There never was,
There never will be!
It's simply not there
in the grand scheme of things;

The universe came forth
from a Big Bang,
There's nothing out there
except darkness, silence and chaos,
Mankind sprang forth and spread
through murders, invasions, looting,
deception, backstabbing, jihad
crusades, inquisitions, crucifixion;

A God who destroys men,
Men who kills in God's name;

Peace is a misnomer!

It can only be found, if at all,
within oneself,
Seeking it outside is 
a boondoggle project
of epic proportion!
