Peace Without Leaders: A Poem
There has never been a nation that hated another
without their leadership instigating all that hate
as humans inherently act as a sister and a brother
without obstacles which their differences would create.
And there has never been a god up in those holy skies
who hated other gods ever created by believing man
but it took religious leaders to spread all those lies
still polluting believers' hearts since the time began.
But then, when you really think of it, no leader is to blame
for they are just temptations and testers of our free mind
so, wherever you may look the story is the same
people sheepishly following that persuasive kind.
Brother against brother in so many civil wars
and political parties tearing us all apart
all about someone's career and how high it scores
bypassing sanity and ignoring the loving heart.
Maybe there is hope in some future generation
who might laugh all human differences away
so that new history starts with every nation
burying the hatchet and ignoring what careerists have to say.
