Why Do This?


Why does fighting have to be so violent?
Why does it have to be so blinding?
Why does it always have to take..
Why is it even still a thing in this generation?.
Whose gon take care of the little kids after y'all done killing each other?
Who will be left behind to say, " it paid off. "? if all of you die.
Who will bury who?
Who will this little kids look up-to while you all killing the legends within yourselves.
Why let our mothers weep while they already have more than enough in their plates?....
Why let the guns, the machetes, the blows, the punches and bombs talk.. While all that is needed is just an agreement?
Why let rivers flow with blood? While the water is much needed...
Why poison the whole dam while you wanna kill just one?
Why ....
Why fight and not reconcile..
Why make orphans while the world it's self is already weeping...
Why burn down trees while the birds still up there...
Why walk towards death while life is much beautiful with all of you around.... .

Why fight if it doesn't fix a smile on your face

Why fight if you not sure you'll be alive at the end of it ..

Why fight and it don't feed your family in return..

Why fight if it's just going to wipe is all out.. .

Why fight.?


Is love your neighbor not a good enough commandment?

Is peace that dusty?

Is love one another not a statement to wanna see tomorrow....

Is peace too much to ask for... ?

Why do this while you can do that without having to do this...

Why not do this and not do that?

Great concept. I doubt if it will ever end but peace would be a welcome change for all.

Nicely written idea.

I understand your plea and argue that we need to figure out how to start treating others with dignity and respect. When we all work together in love miracles happen. Jamie
