how many roads must a man walk down
before u call him a man?
how many seas must a white dove sail
before she sleeps in the sand?
how many times must the cannon balls fly
before they are forever banned?
how many times must a man look up
before he can see the sky?
how many ears must one man have
before he can hear people cry?
how many deaths will it take till he knows
that too many people have died?
how many years can a mountain exist
before its washed to the sea?
how many years can people exist
before they are allowed to be free?
how many times can a man turn his head
pretending he just doesn’t see?
