Must there be hate



Love may end in despair,
One will try to hold on,
Thinking it can't be over,
Years spent together as one.

The house of sticks,
Fall one by one,
Grown children take sides,
Hateful deeds are done,

Go away daddy, far away,
Mom is left alone and blue,
We  two daughters do choose,
We are her likness true.

The same hateful bossing,
Dirty tricks played on others,
Three as we stand together,
We have our lives and lovers.

Listen my daughters, my blood,
I'm the one who moved the earth for you,
Life is short the seconds fly by,
Let your hearts beat love, make no one cry.
