Should I plant a bomb - or a flower?
Knock down evil - or a tower?
Should my planes bomb kids?
Or on this war - place lids?
"Can't plant a flower, it's too degrading!"
Killing the unseen, is ego-inflating!"
Who's to blame? They point to each other.
Neither side understands, they're killing a brother.
Each creature that's born, 's on a family tree,
At the top of which, is God, you see.
Strip away each body, and therein lies,
A soul no different, meant for Paradise.
Planting a flower, in our brother's land,
You spread God's beauty, with just your hand.
Planting a bomb instead, leads your soul away,
From what God intended, when He made you that day.
