The Mission

             SARAJEVO - the mission
It's all the news, the guns may soon be still
but promises fail as reality
and though the news is good, it never will
bring peace to where a peace can never be

though best intentions are to make amends
and bring together those who've never known
that differences can make the best of friends
if only they could build on this alone;

the reasoning is foreign to their ways
grown from a past the world can't understand
and all their hate's been with them all their days
as if it's all a hate that life has planned.

   And in a peace that lasts a day at best
   one mission quick becomes just like the rest.
