What The World Might Be Like In The Future

Life is about choice
the future is up to you
allow anger to grow
and the world goes to war
nuclear bombs
and the world die's 
there is no future
Learn to save create work
overcome poverty
reduce suffering
build a world of games
teach people to play
and the world becomes 
a paradise
life is about choice
the future's up to you
Everyday we see abuse
in the name of religions
yet you insult God
do you really think
he lacks the power to fight
he doesn't need you 
to fight his battles
What he wants 
is humans to make
Paradise on earth
to treat each other
with respect
To live love and
enjoy Life
