I have just read the news here today,
and it really struck me in a meaningful way
The young and the old and the meek and the bold
should really stop and think
what they're doing today...
In a world full of conflict and fact very vague
sometimes we suffer and must turn the page.
Doesn't matter your gender, your race, or your age.
What matters is that you aren't sending
the world down in a cascade.
Sometimes we humans are caught up in hate,
and shun out other humans because of a trait
and uses their taunts and bully and bait
so they'll put the different to a premature fate.
They say they do that to make their country great,
to put it in a secure happy fine state,
and in doing so they close up the gate,
and for a chance to war again, they'll eagerly wait.
They'll spew fiery breath, and scream for more death.
With sinister eyes, they smile and stare.
As if saying, ''You'll never belong anywhere.''
Rotten's their head
and their heart is dead
and they wish all others were too,
for all to look the same
if not, it's their chance to scream 'lame!'
and make others really feel blue...
We can build bridges, so why build a wall?
Come on! Let's unite and not bully at all.
