WHY?

Why do you not blame God for all the wars,
For all the soldiers dead on foreign shores,
Why do you always say Oh, why, Oh why,
We send so many men away to die.
Has not God said that peace will only come,
When the Lord returns to undo what has been done,
For war was founded by the Lord God’s will,
Who taught man from the beginning how to kill.
Just to survive man had to compete on Earth,
With men and beasts marking out their turf,
Their speech was altered lest they all unite,
To live in peace with no reasons left to fight.
To seek together the power God withholds,
Lest to them all the truth of life unfolds.
