PEACE

God planned war; there can’t be peace
If it is God who created Earth.
Tis the character of Mother Nature’s beast
To divide our belief and worth.
How could a vegetable seed survive,
If we exterminated not the weed,
The heart of life is kept alive,
By the cruel elegance of its need.
Look how the viruses must attack –
How all things compete for life.
How those who a strong source lack,
Meet fatal ends to strife.
Well we may dream of peace but that,
Would end not war, but life.
