Chosen Words

Wednesday, July 12, 2017 by The Press in Opinion

I Wonder

I wonder ‘bout a lot of things,

I wonder every day,

I wonder why we fight and kill,

Just to have our way.

I wonder why our Lord don’t stop

The ugliness we see;

I wonder why the world has changed,

And why it has to be.

I wonder what protesters feel

As they march along and scream;

I wonder what they scream about,

Or if they ever dream.

There is a LOT to shout about,

There’s love and hope and joy!

I wonder if all people

Could find love they could employ.

I wonder if people think about

The wars so long ago.

How many people lost their lives?

I guess we’ll never know.

I know they died for freedom!

And, at the very least,

They died for you and all mankind,

So we could live in peace.

I wonder if someday everyone

Will learn to love and care,

So we can see a world of love

In which we all could share!
