Why will people on this Earth not live in peace together
Fight for language, faith an in dependency.
Bombs and guns and landmines never make conditions better,
Many people will be left in poverty.
Fights for left and right ideas, for power and influence.
Fighting for fanatic leaders, will all fighting never end.
If all people would together work for food and health for all,
All the people could together build a peaceful world.
Why all ends in violence instead of work together,
Work for life for all the people on this Earth.
Civil war and terror never make conditions better,
Making hunger for the poorest people worse.
Every time a bomb is shed, or people fight with guns,
Arms industry earning better still will be the winning ones.
Use of violence will never help for better welfare be,
Arms industry so forever we as winner see.
