WHAT ARE WE FIGHTING FOR

I dream about a blessed day, when we’re unified, standing hand in hand. Let’s just put aside our hate, for heaven’s sake. Chorus What are we fighting for? Let’s end hate’s violent war. Embrace love, so hate can be no more. What are we fighting for? There’s a pandemic plaguing the land. Because of it, fear has visited every man. It’s an invisible enemy that we haven’t a clue how to fight. Chorus What are we fighting for? Let’s end hate’s violent war. Embrace love, so hate can be no more. Our children are the future, if we go on like this, What kind of future will that be? Chorus What are we fighting for? Let’s end hate’s violent war. Embrace love, so hate can be no more. Let’s throw down the weapons of intolerance and destruction. And pick up peace, hope, love and joy to have in our arsenal. Chorus What are we fighting for? Let’s end hate’s violent war. Embrace love, so hate can be no more. Bridge I choose love, let it consume me. Only walking in love can eradicate the poisonous venom of hate. What are we fighting for? I hope for a better tomorrow, I’m tired of all the sorrow. Let cross the bridge of hate and walk into love’s wing. …………….. So we can know what we’re fighting to for Oh…. What you’re fighting for?

The whole world and almost every country is at war for some reason or other. Racisim is a big, why, from as far back as I can remember when we lived in Zambia, all my best friends were African or Indian. Love and hugs, Jennifer.

No one can disagree with the sentiments of this poem Alexis. There is so much discord in the world right now, and it is going to take a lot of effort and changing attitudes before we can make the world a truly better place. Well written - Bill
