Peace Is Overrated
Poem By Lenore Lee
A land of peace is overrated.
The dream of it is seriously out-dated,
Because peace is truly non-existent
The dream of it is only ever lent
There will always be someone who'll fight,
That someone will always believe they're doing right.
There are different reasons for it all,
Such as self-defence, pride or just being poor.
If you were living in poverty with a family to feed,
Would you not fight to steal what you need?
If your country was invaded by power-hungry politicians,
Would you not fight to save your home's position?
It is human nature to fight,
To defend what they believe is right.
The only way to discontinue this,
Is pretend that nothing is amiss.
To do as told and not fight back,
To never act out of whack,
To be controlled like mindless slaves,
And to keep our thoughts locked in caves.
Humans have free will,
In the end they'll always get their fill,
Of freedom, that's just the way we are,
And that's the way I'd prefer it by far.
