Peace on earth

Whats happened to all the peace on earth
And good will to all mankind
It seems to me theres no such thing
Or at least its hard to find

It was lack of education
Or resourses were to blame
But the western world
With all its greed appears to be the same

Was nothing learned from lessons past
From the waste of human life
That tyranny and bloodshed
Only leads to greater strife

Is there some vast plan we should know about
Before its all to late
Or will the world descend in misery
With its decadence and hate

With all their talks and summits
They should find a common path
To lead all nations of the world
In a peace that ought to last.

Very timely poem!!! Peace is something so rare in today's world, you often wonder,where did peace go? So true!!!
Does peace have a chance?
Will there ever be joy & happiness on this earth?
As if natural calamity's were not enough?


everything is about peace!saving it , wanting it,needing it,and having it , but the just dosnt seem lke its comfterble talking beucase of all the lies through the years. and yes the westren world is to cocky for its good thinking that lall of its knowledge can save the wrold from terror
when all there doing really is making it worse by going into lands trying making them like western world. yes there intentions are good but they really cant see what there doing. this ismy take on this it was really good
