Quatern: Peace

Quatern

Peace

Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Asking why mankind has no peace.
I watch as greed, envy and war,
Smile and compliment each other.

Ideals born in our greedy past,
Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Defined our freedom as mere gain,
And our rights as buying power.

Each man looks out just for himself,
Thinking that he is mighty Ra,
Walking down this gloomy pathway,
Yet mortal is his true nature.

One day surely there will be peace.
When we see that Earth is homeland,
To all mankind and we’ll stop
Walking down this gloomy pathway.
