PLEA TO HUMANITY

Written by: Demetrios Trifiatis

Plea to Humanity


The obliterating war of nations:
Eternal hell in my heart I fear

The terrifying burning of heavens:
Roaring fire, over my head I see

The shuddering cracking of the earth:
Menacing thunder, under my feet I hear

The end is near! The end is near!



The laughing children, the blooming flowers,
The singing birds, will be Gone

Victims to laziness, victims to hatred,
Victims to stubbornness will all fall

Beauty and harmony, form and color,
Music and art will disappear

The end is here! The end is here!

 
Desperately I cry with all my might,
                                     With all my force,
To you my friend, to you my brother,
                                     To you my foe,
Listen to reason, listen to goodness,
                                     Listen to love,
And give precious life, on our planet,
                                    Another chance!
