War On Peace

  War On Peace
Streetart By ICY & SOT (Iran)

I see yet another scene,
War, war the goggle box screams
Wars on streets, kids fighting back,
All for their solution, a joint or some crack,
This is not Utopia,
Responsibility is their myopia !

War, War The government screams,
Send our boys to fight an opposing regime,
To help their brothers whose rights are denied,
Yet there will be casualties affecting both sides,
This is not a bad dream,
Communication should reign supreme!

War, war being fought in my nations name,
The heavy burden which just causes shame,
Kids fighting in and on our streets,
Parents guidance diluted, empty, deplete!
This is not a mummy state,
Nurturing should be innate!

People power can create peace,
Peace in one's mind, 
Is a peace of some kind, 
Peace on this earth,  
Would need a rebirth, 
For all of humanity,
To restore balance,
Hope and a sense of sanity!
