I Wish I Were, They Wish I Were Not…

I wish
I were a war never fought
A peace never bought
The blood never splattered
The lives never battered.

I wish
I were the guns never fired
The bombs never aspired
The batons never charged
The orders never discharged.

I wish
I were a lie never spoken
Dreams never broken
A hatred never born
A love never shorn.

I wish
I were a Government never formed
Policies never deformed
A religion never a refuge
A god drowned forever in the deluge.

I wish I were..
They wish I were not…
