New birth

What a world we live in.
Women and children killed,
partners demolished,
animals slaughtered in the name of ' fun '.

Bombs dropped, bullets shot and boundaries set.
Annihilation, all a job lot.

Why can't we all survive,
a peaceful harmony,
a coming of age.
All just destitute phrase.

Religion abound, fortune explored,
land that is taken with might and a force.

Think of the quiet against a storm,
if we work together,
we have no thorn.

Am I the only respite,
my mind is alive with all that's not fight.
Why is it we do not re think,
what will we achieve with all of this spite.

A terseness akin to a tearing,
Volcanoes erupt, intensely diverting.

Just let us be without all your hinder,
I am sure we will make a splendour.
Stop all the din, clout all the sin,
we are the ones, lets herald us in.
