The death of the innocent, the weak, the children, the old.
What in this world creates the violence in the minds of men?
The wars fought with no improvement to show.
The battles lost, men lost.
Weapons change to better the world.
Change from bullets never comes.
The wars seem endless.
Men not learning from previous mistakes
From the catastrophes they have seen, the friends they have lost.
The shots fired, soldiers lost forever.
Losing lives in pointless disputes.
A mother's tears fall like autumn leaves, seeming never to stop.
Family's eating dinner, no words spoken.
Men never learning.
Arguments still raging.
One war ends, another begins.
Peace will never show itself.
The violence in minds, never to leave.
The killing of people, never to stop.
Men, never to learn.
