War...The Endless Cycle

Children are the future,
Yet why do people send
The future to the Battlegrounds?
Will War ever end?

Why is it that wars exist,
Why do we fight?
Why must the palm become a fist,
To do nought, but smite?

Why is it we fight and die,
When we can live?
Why is it we steal and take,
When we can give?

Why is it that soldiers fight
For Glory and for Fame?
Why do we see how we're different,
But not how we're the same?

How can we look people in the eye, and still fire our guns?
There are many reasons for fighting wars, but None for starting one.

Children are the future,
Yet why do people send
The future to the Battlegrounds?
Will War ever end?

Why can we not leave be in peace,
Live, Laugh and Love?
Why can't we live through sunny days,
With doves singing above?

How has the World become so Blind,
Why can no one see?
That we can live in a better World,
If we just Believe...


Why does the World Utopia, seem so Far Away?
Why must we live through Chaos, day after day?

Children are the future,
Yet why do people send
The future to the Battlegrounds?
Will War ever end...?
