Reject violence

What made you swop books for bombs?
What has gone so, so very wrong?
From learning about that which is constructive
You decided to learn how to be destructive
From feelings of joy rushing to your throat
Anger now surges through you, and hatreds cloak
Shrouds you like a dead corpse

The world was yours to explore
What poisoned you to the core
Being used as someone’s tool
Is this the child that was in school?
The child who used to love reading
Now leaving people dead, bleeding
What a disaster!

Who filled your head with such ideas
What made you shed blood and tears
The student and teacher both have a part to play
Some classes you go to, from others walk away

Reject violence, push for peace.
