Hatred is everywhere
War is agonising
Don't you dare
Old men argue while young men die
Disaster and pain
Caused by your shame
We are all innocent, no one to blame
I hear you cry ...
Children with no home
forever left to roam
a child in pain
trouble in their way
Hospitals full to the brim
I am only a child
I know that this is wrong
So much hatred you feel inside
Listen to my song
Before the world is gone!

"That Love is all there is,
Is all we know of Love ..."
It wasn't you, it wasn't me,
Up there, two thousand feet above
A New York street.
We're safe, and free,
A little while, to live and love,
Imagining what might have been -
The phone-call from the blazing tower,
A last farewell on the machine,
While someone sleeps another hour,
Or worse, perhaps, to say goodbye
And listen to each other's pain,
Send helpless love across the sky,
Knowing we'll never meet again,
Or jump together, hand in hand,
To certain death.
Spared all of this
For now, how well I understand
That love is all, is all there is.
Wendy Cope (b. 1945)
