Yesterday has gone forever
tomorrow never arrives,
now is all the time we have
for us to live our lives.
History is in the past
the future has never been,
the present is the only time
that we have ever seen.
Building on the past is an assumption
building for the future is a hope,
most people just want to live in peace
but some need a hand to cope.
We could come together as a species
but fighting keeps the nations apart,
starting wars insisting they're for peace
when peace is what we have before they start.
Life is a present from heaven
as a gift it is simply the best,
and you won't live any longer
by trying to kill off the rest.
