People Say... - Poem by Abdul Sattar

People say but I can’t believe
That the beautiful world will perish
By the cruel hands of human beings

People say but I can’t believe
That powerful will press the weakest
And will urge to become the best

People say but I can’t believe
That one that kills do not bring
The peace to the rest who sing

People say but I can’t believe
That those who are weak
Can not find what they seek

People say but I can’t believe
That justice can bring peace
In the Cyprus and the Greece


People say but I can’t believe
Free people, free thoughts and free mind
Can bring good, can search and find

Am I right or wrong?
You can take it as you long
