~ Why Can't It Be? ~

At night I dream
Of wondrous things
A world that's free of strife.
Lots of love
From above
A beautiful thing called Life.

But then I awake
My heart does ache
As I know it's only a dream,
Violence abounds
Agony resounds
As my insides start to scream.

Our country is at war
On far and distant shores
When will it ever end,
Lives are lost
Look at the cost
What message do we send?

God has been removed
We don't approve
But no one seems to care,
A world devoid
So many unemployed
We need to send up prayers.

The world we need
Should be free of greed
And peace is all we know,
Spread love around
It will compound
And my dream will start to grow.

So tell me why
As I sit and cry
Can love and peace never be?
Is my dream just that
More fiction than fact
Lord help us all to see.
