  • Gather Round

    Alright everyone gather round
    I'm here to divulge some information I feel is profound
    Why do we treat the world as our own hunting ground
    Brutality of fighting continues to confound
    Finger of blame easily cast around
    Response to hear war cries resound
    We claim to be delivering freedom, but death always surrounds
    Family homes turn to a rubble mound
    Situations where desperation abound
    Fathers, mothers, and children crying you can hear the sound
    Why does sadness lead to hate which always compounds
    Those who are affected we must be quick to surround
    Give them another chance to be happy instead of pushed around
    Discussion with kind words is the best response I have found

    How do we put ourselves in other people's shoes
    The only things we know are what we hear on the news
    Which the media has control over, they can pick and choose
    Allowed to make the edits which give them good reviews
    Like which celebrity is drinking what booze
    Please excuse, my inability to be amused
    While people are killing other people because they are from different crews
    Why does this transgression ensue
    Response is jail cells, just like zoos
    When we need to understand the root cause, what's the fuse
    Like a detective we should follow the clues
    Before the wound there was a bruise
    How does violence seem like the answer, I'm left so confused
    If we all come together we can aim to collaborate, and understand each other's views
