Freed you are from ignorance if you,
Read your way through books.
Breed with like minded binds,
Exceed your intellectual looks.
Sight the images that form in your mind,
Light them up with your words.
Right path if you take,...
The terrible sounds of blasts, oh! Unbearable.
The stench of blood, flesh and smoke, makes us uneasy.
What do you gain ye human, by spreading hatred?
Please, let us grow up in peace, shed war, embrace love.
Sweat, blood of millions
Transpired the freedom we laud,
Alas! They couldn't see.
