The Phoenix Rises

A PEACE Of My Mind!


Leave a comment

Aleppo

Families
Just tending to each other

A father, a son, a daughter,

And a mother
Families

Just living their lives

Their parents and the kids

Their husbands and their wives
People

Who wanted change

Only for the better

Then things got strange
War

Not what anyone wanted

Destruction

Not what anyone wanted
Lives

Brought to ruin

Praying for peace

That it comes real soon
Aleppo

Aleppo

Where can anyone go?

To find peace

To find love

Just to survive

And feel at home
Syria

Innocent people

Innocent lives shattered

For someone else’s game

Syria

The world cries for you
Just want

To go to the market and eat

Hang with friends

But it seems

Like this hell on earth

Can’t ever be beat
You pray to God

For this to end

Hoping that someone

Will come and help
Aleppo

Waiting for the day to get quiet

Hear a bird sing
Syria

Will the children ever sing again?

Will we ever hear them playing and laughing?
Syria

Will your heart heal again?

When this is over?

When will this end?
Will the sounds of screams,

Will the sounds of cries,

Ever go away?
Peace

We pray for peace

We know it’ll come someday

And for Syria

We all hope it’s today
Peace

Such a sweet, sweet thing

The sweetest of the fruits
Peace

Such an easy thing

Right now, so hard to find
Syria

Waiting at the window

Waiting for a glimpse

Of peace

Waiting for peace.
