Life 2

LIFE Life is a gift But we have never cared Destruction of the rain forest And no animal is spared Arise great Pro-man Now raise up your sword Do not let materialism deceive you So stick to your word The petroleum wells will dry up some day And they will be no money for you to pay with in that way The gold mines will diminish one day And there will be no fields for our children to play Arise Pro-human Defend mother earth Do not think of wealth Or all that you can get Life is beautiful So let us be dutiful As a Good Samaritan And help your fellow African Chinese or European In need To create a paradise devoid of greed That is what I call Utopia Not until we die When it is all over We can not let the children suffer I have seen pain in my old days The weak rise And the mighty fall Armies rise to fight at the clarion call Only the truth remains Like a tree that stands tall In the next millennia where shall we be? Vanity after vanity The rest is history Life is a gift And love is a blessing Let us unite this world And teach a good lesson

perhaps, human can learn and differ from material to grow a status for human, for living not for hell or heaven and can think about our relationship that is based on Love. We need try to unite this world as we are brother and sisters. Well Done
