The war is not confined.
The war is inside all of us.
From young to old.
From girl to boy.
From poor to rich.
Some let the war take them over,
And victims fall.
Some do not,
And help the victims rise again.
The war is manufactured.
In guns, bombs, knives,
And other senseless carriers of the war.
The war is encouraged,
By the voices we hear,
And the sights we see.
The war is discouraged,
By those who know that the war is evil.
The war kills.
The war destroys.
The war corrupts.
The war kills.
The war is in government.
The war is arrogance,
And ignorance of thy fellow man.
Ignorance of thy fellow creatures.
Ignorance of thy own earth.
The war brings about wars,
On the outside and in.
The war is contained in reaction.
The war is prejudice.
The war is greed.
The war is hate.
The war is fought incorrectly,
By using another war.
The war can only be solved by peace.
By truth, pureness, freedom,
Justice, love, honour,
Helpfulness, humour, kindness,
Heart, humbleness, cheer,
Acceptance, compromise, and more…
The war cannot be destroyed,
By its own self.
The war must be destroyed,
Without recreating it in the process.
Peace is the answer.
