Peace & The Casualties Of War!
The people of Earth face many problems
by Tom Zart
Struggling to make their living and maintain peace.
There are differences in language, faith and race
With misguided hate unwilling to cease.
To solve these problems that plague mankind
Man must strive as never before.
Demanding justice with truth in settling disputes
While recalling with pain, the casualties of war.
War is an emotional release for man
Practiced since the first stones were cast.
Could it be nature's way of thinning the numbers
As the fallen are consumed by the past?
May the future show mercy on all who survive
With their visions of innocence forever lost.
Prayerfully, someday man will cease wagging war
Avoiding through peace it's consequence and cost.
Some have asked why must we study history
It just encourages us to live in the past.
When we forget history we repeat its mistakes
As the outcome of humanity is cast.
When twisted by pursuing all, which is wrong
Our compassion becomes self-serving.
We ‘re tormented by mistrust, suspicion and rage
And our downfall as a human is deserving.

'TRUE GOODNESS IS SHOWN BY PERFORMING
WITHOUT WITNESS WHAT ONE MIGHT BE
CAPABLE OF BEFORE THE WORLD
WITHOUT ANY OR ALL TO SEE! '
