Why do people create War?
Bombarding each other til the spirit is raw
Inflicting pain on strangers
It’s a numbers game...who kills more.

No one wants to lose
So death is what they choose
Who made THESE people “God”?
Where in hell did they get their views?

What is so wrong?
For mankind to get along
For us to experience peace
To come together and be strong

Please someone, wave the white flag
Remove your stifling gag
Spread the word of peace and love
HATE is not a word used by God above.

    This is written from your heart Juanita...I feel your angst... As Richard says below, '...until Jesus comes again...' we can expect wars...still, we must keep our hopes alive. Great job! Have a great weekend! Always, Annalise Chek your Soup Mail
