STOP

The streets are burning
The heads are turning
Please stop and listen
Stop playing the game of divide
In the name of religion
just to savor your foolish pride

Stop drawing boundaries in the name of
A makeshift version of divine
Stop claiming the land as yours and mine
The enemy that you so claim to fight
Is the one residing in your own mind

The god that you so claim to serve
If that’s what you choose to believe
It has created us all
the thorns and the storms
the flowers and the trees
Animals of all kinds
and humans short and tall

So why do you want to split
Tear the world apart…bit by bit
Sitting on a privileged pedestal
While the streets are all lit

Stop before it’s all a graveyard
And what reflects in the mirror
Is faint of a shadow
And a youth lost in horror
