Soldier On The Beach
he laid on the gaza beach, the m-16 within his reach
at a young age he was taught, that the palestinians had always fought
fighting for freedom and the land, was something that he could understand
but this was a day of relaxation, away from the war and the devastation.
the waves rolling in to the shore - peace and quiet at last once more.
will there ever be peace on the gaza strip?
or will i forever have a gun on my hip!
centuries have gone by and still the battle rages
no one is willing to adjust to changes.
so many countries have been divided in two
civil war was all they knew.
there is never peace! always unrest
is GOD putting us to a test?
when will these murders end?
that we could become neighbors and friends.
there are three things that rule this world
politics, religion, and greed.
why is it that people don't read!
whether it be the bible, the koran, or any other religious book
we must stop and take a look!
no where does it say to destroy one another
when we are all sister and brother.
this soldier is now relaxing on the beach
this is something that our children we should teach.
