Leaders of the Nations of the World

Post by linda56 » Fri Mar 13, 2015 12:51 pm

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Let peace reign upon the lands
Let the world stop fighting
For something, noone understands!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Not one person on earth wants war
Only you can change the way we live
Is that too much for people to ask for?

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Do you enjoy watching children die each day?
Yet you proclaim, they are our future
While every day, thousands disappear and fade away.

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Why must each of you want to rule one another?
Why must you have the best of nuclear bombs?
When in reality, everyone just wants to get along with each other.

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Why can't you just help one another out?
When one Nation needs help, only a few come to the rescue
While the rest of you are scheming to hurt others, beyond any doubt.

Leaders of the Nations of the World
No parent wants to see their son or daughter die
Only you can stop the needless slaughtering
Only you can stop a mothers cry!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
We live in the year 2015, the so-called modern age
Yet around the world, it looks like we are going back in time
With all the chaos caused by your deplorable rage!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
The mess we live in was created solely by you
You let things get so out of hand, things have to change
So you keep on fighting because you don't know what else to do!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
The people want change, we want peace
We want the world to get along, once and for all
We want all of this fighting and killing to cease!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
We want to be able to walk freely, just like days of old
We do not want to be discriminated because of our race or religion
We want our freedom back, not to be controlled!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
It is our born right to ask for this from you
Soon when people will realize, we are all created equal
Will you become a Nation to look up to?

Leaders of the Nations of the World
Religious leaders have pleaded with you time and time again
It's not too late to change your ways and make amends
Before you end up destroying us, all in the end!

Leaders of the Nations of the World
This world was created for people to live in Harmony and Peace
Do you all forget that God wants us to love one another?
Or are you going to set back while the world destroys itself,
Piece By Piece!
By Linda Laybolt(2015)
Mark 12:13
And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.

What an awesome poem, Linda!!! It would be wonderful if these words could be heard and heeded by all the leaders of our world. Your poem is a vivid reminder that we need to pray for the leaders of the world and trust God to work in hearts and minds. Thank you for sharing!
Love and blessings, Shirley
