WHEN GOD CREATED THIS PLANET



war 23

 

When God created this planet,

It was a place of perfect peace,

As soon as man was created,

All this tranquillity was to cease.

 

Since man took control,

We have experienced up evil and war,

So what has man achieved?

That wasn’t here before.

 

If God placed us upon this earth,

What was his purpose what was his aim?

We don’t seem to jell together,

For we’ve been to war again.

 

We interfere with others,

Of which we have no right,

We argue over religion,

Over that we even fight.

 

If man ceased to exist in this world,

The world would be a better place,

For we seem to be destroying,

This planet at an alarming pace.

 

Let us all preserve what we have,

Before it becomes to late,

Let us not destroy this gift,

If we do we all will know our fate.

 

We will end up with desolation,

Parched and barren lands

Dried up seas and rivers,

And deserts filled with sand.

 

The answer lies with all of us,

And lessons we all must learn,

For if we loose the nature,

It will never ever return.
