Nobody talks about Peace anymore.
The world has been hostile for too many years.
They scream about conflict, speak boldly of war.
A senior in high school has known nothing more
then a planet long poised in panic and fear
Even the schools don’t teach Peace anymore.
Poets and artists all know what’s in store
But no one is listening, no one can hear
As news reports hatred and battles and war
Anxiety-ridden and stressed to the core
People hide terrified terror is near.
while Peace seems a fable, a story of yore.
And when with our families and those we adore
Does anyone bother to shed any tears
For a world bathed only in bloodshed and war?
Children among us know nothing more.
It’s all they’ve been taught since the day they were born.
No one remembers the Peace anymore.
A whole population raised solely in war.
