Man just kills another man...

Man just kills another man
 Saying God had told him so
 Is he following God's plan
 Or those really in the know?

 Those who orchestrate events
 And use up whatever fear
 Just to get the mass incensed
 With the words they need to cheer.

 They don't care about the kids
 That get murdered in their wake
 All they do is place their bids
 Which just grow with the heartache.

 God or Country, Color, Gender
 Are just buttons they will press
 On the always working blender
 Of the public under stress.

 Look around and see their labors -
 Europe, Asia, Middle East
 Neighbors fighting against neighbors
 Every day there is less peace.

 And those countries who aren't fighting
 Are then forced to pick a side
 Which just leads to more dividing,
 Sanctions, bickering, hurt pride…

 When will cooler heads prevail?
 How many will have to die?
 What will finally tip the scale
 After which we'll really try?

 All religions are not changing
 Nor will we become one race.
 No amount of rearranging
 Will give everyone their space.

 People still will chose to marry
 Those who want to marry them,
 While most will forever carry
 Names of those they will condemn…

 What I'm hoping will transpire
 Is at some point very soon.
 Older adages retire
 And we'll sing a different tune.

 We'll refuse manipulation
 Feeding on the worst in us,
 And decide we're all ONE nation
 And start driving our own bus.

 We will realize our future
 Isn't based on just our past.
 Use that knowledge as a suture
 And sow something that will last!
