DREAMERS AND SOLDIERS

Dreamers will dream and soldiers will fight,
If there was no darkness there could be no light.
Suffering is natural it is what we all do,
It’s the way nature works; it is factual and true.
It’s the way we are made all animals and plants,
It’s the way the Earth works nothing is chance.
We cannot avoid war – nor the heroes who fight –
Because both sides believe their reason is right.
Killing is normal; we must kill to eat,
We must kill to survive to avoid unpleasant defeat.
Take away the laws that disguise what we are,
And the world would be waging a never-ending war.
For the Earth, by design, is a violent place
And life is dependent on death for the human race.
