Cradle of Liberty

The face of war sneers as it burns with anger
Innocent victims wail and groan while anguish
Terrorizes and distorts once peaceful lands
Horror and fear reign

Day and night, violence and riots plague the world
Mental and moral battles breathe out fiery threats
Brutality shakes hands with greed and hatred
Lives lay in ruin

Earth trembles furiously from munitions
Human remains lay in fragmented pieces
Tombs of rubble and nameless epitaphs
There lie fallen ones

Life’s final cry is to cease war and hatred
Let the fire of love burn within instead
Memories of such crime it tries to erase
Live in one accord
