The land so foreign
The people so different
The beautiful birthplace of man, reduced to an eyesore of rubble
So much promise
So much potential
Swindled by deceit and lies
Old powers fall
New regimes rise
Rouge factions spew evil from their mouths
The use religion as a catalyst for destruction
Innocent lives of mothers, fathers, sons and daughters
Lost to senseless bickering and endless lies
The sham of progress motivates the politics of the situation
The new breed of terror pounces on the opportunity
Thoughts of change are trounced by words of hate
Will the violence ever end?
Will change overcome old thinking?
Millions of years from the past
Millions of years till the future
The times of the present determine our fate
