How Many Times

PeaceDove

How many lives have been ruined
For what we call you and me
How many decisions have you made
When you refused to clearly see

How many wars have been fought
Out of ignorance anger grew
How many more will take their place
To return the payback that’s due

How many of us have simply stopped
Taken a step back to take a look
How many see beyond the pettiness
What far too many have mistook

How many times must this habit prevail
Before we finally realize
That I am you and you are me
And peace is life’s only prize
