What is this world? This Earth have we Spinning around, chaotically I often gaze through tear-dropped eyes Those bright sparkling lights dotting our skies   Wondering if there’s order above Justice, hope, worlds filled with love Returning my gaze to all this around The hatred, the malice, war with no sound   Listening to silence, … More What is this World?
