A continuation of:

The innocent sky so blue

Above a world filled with words far from true.

Pools of blood splattered around

An end to these wars is yet to be found

Us who are safe know not:

All those people living in fear have we forgot?

Words streaming through mouths...

Many minds full of endless doubt...

No matter what colour or race we are;

No matter the religion we believe in

Our rights as humans remain

All the same do we all feel pain.

Due to the sins of a minority

The blame falls on the majority.

Dear world, blame not us all

For the terrorists themselves know they will fall

Distorting the truth for which peace has always been the call

Tainting an entire belief and its interpretation

They will inevitably suffer eternal damnation.

Let us all join our hearts

And prevent other nations from falling apart.

Let us reach out to all who suffer

Help those whose lives are in danger

And fix what is left of the broken.

Let us stop all the atrocities

For humanity let us all unite.
