To Have a Peaceful World Is Our Dream
Stacked and piled in rows and tiers
Lay crates of guns and bullets to fire,
Destruction is what some people conspire
Though a peaceful world is what we desire.
Can’t you realise, can’t you see?
Their greed for power won't let us be
Let us spread love and put an end to tyranny
That's the only way to set us free.
Enough of this misery, enough of death
That’s blood you see in those pools in red!
So with poison, don't let your minds be fed
Let's calm down and take a peaceful breath.
Inside your heart don't let hatred grow
Feel the warmth within and let it glow,
Find kindness for people and make it show
Cherish unity and find love to flow.
Together we can still try and cope
With the devastation around us while we still have the scope,
Spread love and peace across the globe
Don’t give up; let’s pray and hope.
This world deserves to see a stop to the screams
Of innocent children and dying war victims,
So let us work together and be one big team
Since to have a peaceful world is our dream.
