“The earth has music for those who listen.” —William Shakespeare


According to history

I can’t have what I want.

I wish for peace,

A place of safety,

But according to history,

Peace only comes from war,

And I don’t want war.

 

According to history

I can’t have what I want.

I wish for justice,

Truth above all,

But according to history,

Justice is enacted through war,

And I don’t want war.

 

According to history

I can’t have what I want.

I wish for freedom,

Chances and choices,

But according to history,

Freedom comes after war,

And I don’t want war.

 

According to history

I can’t have what I want,

There is only war.
