My World Fights

My world… it fights….
Over religion, over speech,
Over the right to protect,
Over the right to be free.
My world… fights hard…
Over persuasion, over being fair,
Over who doesn’t belong here,
Over who shouldn’t go there.
My world… fights with malice…
Over the race that no one should survive,
Over who should be spared,
Over not taking even unborn life.
My world… fights gloriously…
Over ethics and rules to the game,
Over losing with dignity,
Over honoring a name.
My world… it fights…
And it fights to rule the world.
They claim it’s all for peace,
Yet all they do is quarrel.
