for a while I just sit there, in the cooling shade of my favorite tree. everything is perfect. perfect as can be, under my favorite tree that loves and adores the company of me. soon I tire just sitting there, and so I start to climb up its smooth, brown bark...up into the branches so high. I start to slip, but it catches me, and lets me know I'm safe...even when the wind pushes me, and when I look out at the sky up high because its my favorite tree, that loves and adores me.

Does every country have to fight?
To claim some land and say it's yours.
Does it make everything seem right?
To try and claim more and more.
The guns, the weapons, and even the bombs,
Is it normal to feel unsafe at night?
To see loved ones leave and be gone.
What seems like fireworks is a sight,
But finding it's war is normal.
Is world peace too much to look forward to?
Instead of living in a world so dull.
Stop all this fighting why don't you!
Focus on being friends, not foes.
Is that too much to show?
