One Can Only Live In Hope

With all these wars and talks of wars I fear for Humankind
For man the premier primate to self destruction is inclined
Talks of terrorists and terrorism in the news headlines every day
And who and what's a terrorist I ask you anyway? .

Of violence and acts of terror we never may be free
And all of Mankind must suffer for man's inhumanity
We only dislike in others what in ourselves we see
And those who dropp their so called legal bombs on foreign cities are terrorists too to me.

It's religion, land and politics that cause the great divide
And by war and other acts of war so many dreams have been destroyed
What we do unto others unto our own selves we do
Those words today still relevant and those words still ring so true.

That there should be a World super power to me just doesn't seem right
For there will always be much resentment towards those who rule by might
And with all these wars and talks of wars for Humankind I fear
But one can only live in hope that peace to us is near.
