The humming bird and the bee
they live so peacefully,
why can't we?
Lion and the zebras
carry a special bond
one needs the other
and the other to cut them
Weapons and explosives,
neither we need, they dictate
weather some live and someone dies to
Peace and harmony is evident in their world,
but we choose to say their instead of our
that chain is an gentle reminder of what we
used to be.
In our world,
we do what we want
dont think twice.
Now is so peaceful and quiet,
leaves rustle gently and rain pit patterns on my roof.
Machine rounds starting
there are screams
there is blood
and death.
