I want to breathe the pure air
I want to live without fear
I want to say no more war
But that time is far away like the stars

My heart cries
Over tragedies
I am tired of hearing the crying
I am tired of hearing the shouts

How poor our people are
We can’t stop the war
Here war, there war, everywhere war
What are these wars for?

Where has peace gone?
Why is there no kindness in our heart?
How do the wars start?
Can someone explain?

We humans have invented so much
In the 21st century
Why can’t we discover
Our own pure hearts

We do not listen to the cries of our hearts
We want to be kept apart
How amazing it would be
If we stopped the wars
