Tomorrow looks faint
At times we wonder
What will happen next?
What if the stars fall?
Nature looks on, letting the rain
Wash the greases off the machine
The blood of blasted bodies and souls
And feeds all into the rivers
One wonders why infants
Are destroyed, not a chance given
A total future wiped off
Bombs hauled into houses, tears and sorrow
We are armed with guns
Drugged most times,
Seldom free of out ‘masters’
And always living by the gun
Why should I kill you?
Why should you kill me?
There’s too many pain to do that
All caused because we love not
The Earths vegetations burn,
The skies and homes burn
The last of our best grains too
And all exotics the Earth has to give
There’s pollution everywhere
We don’t care about the trees
We don’t care about the dying Earth
Of even the beauty of humanity
A prideful march of nationality
Across the waving hands of ‘loved’ ones
Encouraging people to grave acts
What gain will we make of this?
Listen brother, your attention I seek
Your enemy is not man or woman
Let’s fight our real enemies; deforestation
Desertification, erosion, global warming, diseases
Do you knot your hands in anger,
Do you know that all men are equal?
Beheading a fellow human
Goodness! But how do you feel?
How dare you point that at me
Did I steal your yam or corn harvest?
Why are you happy to see blood
Is human beings now lesser than chicken now
Oh mother do not throw away your child
Do not let him march to the fields
Teach him to love, to till the land
To tend the Earth God gave us
What are you, military men?
Oh I see, a cold heart grown
Power is in the hands of people with guns
Now the world they seem to own
The nights are cold in the hamlets
The rains had gone for the time being
But blood has been shed somewhere
In the fields and on the city
I wonder if you see this with me
That love has never dwelled on Earth
That we must love others unconditionally
That the humanity in us is all we got
Whatever happens in your arms
That had put fear and tears
In the hearts and minds of people
Then re-consider, make peace, create love
And when we recall all that has happened
Of all beautiful things we destroyed
Blaming this and that, religion, tribe or color
Then it comes for all to sit and love
