the world

the world is full of hate, wrong doing and injustice
if god made the world why is it like this
if one person could love whole heartedly
oh what a place, what a world it would be
the fighting and rage for money and power
until there is nothing in the world, it’s all devoured
how many people does it take to rule the earth
the answer is complicated what is it worth
if i told you would you really listen
if you knew the truth would your world still glisten
would it make any diference in the way you treat people day to day
would it make you less willing to have things your way
if i were to tell you the rulers deapest secrets, would you really care
and if you really listened, do you think you would feel dispair
would you want to right the wrong and fight till it’s done
would you fight a battle for love, until it was won
would you go the extra mile to love everyperson you know
would you let even the rulers see your love grow
they don’t know love, if they did this fight would end
if they knew love, on money they would not depend
oil, jewelry, gold, anad the finest things in life
are what our rulers value, even more than there wife
the secret is almost out now do you see what i mean
this world is power hungry, thirsty for the green
things will only get worse as the days stretch ahead
the rulers won’t stop till there road blocks are dead
till they own every thing in this god given earth
they want to own it as if they gave it birth
so if you really knew there deepest secret would you
love thy neighbor and do what you should do
would you look at the worl with a loving eye
would you stop hating in your heart, and hoping people would die
would you turn to the world and say i love you all
would you say it loud and proud with your back against the wall
would you turn to your ruler and tell them they are wrong
would you fight the battle for love until you are gone
love the whole world as you love yourself
love is perhaps the greatest wealth
