A Free World Without Barriers And Flags

How unthinkable is for a Jew and an Arab to walk
side by side and end the atrocities of war!
They wouldn't be afraid of a nuclear weapon attack,
their sky would be blue, not filled with horror;  
will their children be taught unprejudiced love 
to build that harmonious and peaceful grove?

If religious wars were never fought, 
so much grief would be spared
for the ones holding the hateful thought:
wouldn't Jesus be more loved?

If food were given to hungry people, 
death would be walking away from all;
many see starvation, but ignore the call...
they rather live well and ignore their struggle.

I must believe in the dream of world peace
when happiness would reign and increase
in lands where justice has been miguided
and the quest for truth has been denied.

Let's hold hands and teach the little ones
never to be remembered of conflicts
that caused woe and death for ages!
Let's write " Peace " on they foreheads:
they will know pure love that can be built with kind hands...
they will create a free world without barriers and flags!
