Tell me why do we have to do battle?
What is it about Man we have this Shackle
That binds us to fight and control
Tell me if you can who is the winner?
Who among us is the greater sinner?
Who do we blame when we disagree?
It has to be you, it can never be me!
We seek to point fingers, in anger we fight
We fail to see our faults reflected in clear sight
Look through the mirror closer to home
Sieve out your thoughts to see how they roam
How often do we judge and say the word ‘Hate’
To send our your anger we are hooked on the bait
Our endocrines teach us to be different and proud
That our way is right while yours is not allowed
We label and attach our names to different groups
When one takes the lead we label them coups
Enforcing our views withholding their rights
We rule making laws, enforcing them tight
Opinions are strong as we each draw a line
The greatest battle fought first starts in the mind
This battle with Ego has come to a head
To explode into pieces of heartache to shed
If this world you are looking to mend
Look no further than self in the thoughts that you send
If this world is to find peace we must first look within
And calm your own battles. This is the first war we must win..
