Contempt for life
Pen replaced for knife
Children's laughter no more
Pressing silence, ears sore

The eyes, they see
But the minds disagree
Natural actions, they say
Yet training needed to obey

Brother against brother
Bombs and fires smother
All is civil, all are one
A father buries his only son

Truth is gone, flown away
Greed and fear are here to stay
Human dignity, compassion is peace
Only empathy can make hatred cease
