By Sangita Kansal
The world is bleeding Don’t wound it anymore It needs love and healing Not bombs, not war Man kills man Annihilates its own kind Can’t we see what we are doing? Are we so blind? Babies are dying Mothers are crying Politicians are lying Devoid is our humanity To view someone as the other To have prejudice based on colour This is a world of insanity Choose dialogue and peace Choose respect and harmony Lay down thy sword, lay down thy gun War must forever cease We are all interconnected We are all part of the whole To hurt the human race, pollutes our essence Destroys our soul By lighting the path of another You light your own Seeds of peace and love Not war be sewn Speak truth to power Raise thy voice for the weak Compassion will flower Benefits of courage we reap Hardened hearts will melt Evil in decline The flame of wisdom Not lust for power will shine Sweep away the cobwebs of ignorance The poison of stupidity and greed Work for a planet of happiness Where every shackled man is freed The common man be King Adorned with a jewelled crown Satan will rule no more Bells of joy will ring No treasure is more precious than life Breathe the air of peace Cleanse the soul of hatred War must forever cease
