I am young, "normal" and I like to write. People say I eat too much, people don't know what they are saying.

Why can't we all just get along?

Why can't we all just get along?
Do we really have to revenge every slight? 
Must we take it so much to heart and pass it on to ages? 
Why do we not let it slide? 

Why can't we all just get along? 
If Peter steps on John's foot does John really have to pick up a gun and shoot off Peter's toe? 
Sue doesn't really like Steve, why won't she let Mary have him?

Why can't we all just get along? 
Does Ted deserve to die because unlike Bob he doesn't believe cucumbers are fruits? 
Do you really need all the sand on the beach for your oversized sandcastle? 
Why can't we all have our average sized castles? 

Why can't we all just get along? 
Stereotypes are wrong 
Lions can be vegetarians
Fart does not always stink

Why can't we all just get along? 
I know a son of the East that will not sell his neighbour's land 
I've been shown great kindness by a man from the north
A man of the south once had every chance but did not hit on the girl 

Why can't we all just get along? 
Because you teach your sons to despise the neighbour
Because despite your many speeches on unity, you hate without reason 
Because you have not learnt to speak the language of the universe, the language of love, the language of God. 

Understanding for an eye
Forgiveness for a tooth
Tolerance for displeasure 
The language that greases the wheels of happiness 
If we both, you and I, speak the language, the language of peace, we would get along just great.
