DEATH WITHOUT GOOD REASON

The Earth is no paradise
Mother Nature is quite cruel,
Killing to survive is natural
in fact is quite the rule,
Death grows life all around us
in beauty it may bloom,
But without the constant struggle
All life would end in doom.
Therefore there is a sadness,
That casts a shadow across the land,
When men die without good reason,
For something they do not understand,
Seeking something to believe in,
That is ultimately grand.
