The seed of hate is growing

in little children’s heads,

and like a river flowing

to “Generation-Next”.

This hate, silently growing,

becomes a stream of blood

and bombs are softly falling

in everybody’s heart.

Around minds high walls

are built of stones from history.

one generation later

not destroyable, you’ll see.

Teach children peace,

teach wisdom-

too many people died!

Let “Generation-Next”

grow up as friends-

for mankind’s pride!


My your soul be at peace my friend,we know you're not all that bad..

Peace be with you & may God bless 'YOU'.. 2..
