We Are All Part Of The Human Race.

We are all part of the human race.
Must we face eternal disgrace?
I am addressing man's
inhumanity to man.

Dare to doubt mine poetic warnings
at your own perilous journeys!
The nations and their leaders
get together to discuss peace,
and prepare themselves for wars.

Why can not the nations gather
together and hold hands.
We are all part of the human race.
War is more destructive unleashed
forces of evil than ever before.

We are addressing the complete destruction
of all of the nations. They lust for
power and dominance, why their
children beg for enough bread to eat.

Why not dedicate their efforts to world peace?
Peace is a fragile thing, not easily won.
But all too easily destroyed. The cries
and pleas are springing forth from
the victims of warfare.

We are all part of the human race.
It can be called the ultimate population
control by the leaders of the world.
If you successfully manage to kill
off your people? You do not
have to provide for them.

The people of the world are praying and pleading for
peace...peace....peace...but there is no lasting peace
among men. Wars and rumors of wars.

Famines and starvation and death...death...death.
With hell...hell.. and the grave not far behind.
Why not destroy one-third of mankind at a single time
bomb!

We are all part of the human race. We are the creation of
God! But we have become the sons and daughters of
Satan, himself. When humans die, Satan laughs all the louder!
The thief has come to kill, steal, and destroy. But his
the position could become vacant. Why should he work,
when the leaders of the world- are
more than willing and able to do his-
dirty work for him!
