Where Is The Love??

by Padmore Agbemabiese

How do we go from here to Love
When violence wrecks our nations
When indifference is the gain of pledges
How do we go from here to cherished Hope
When corruption is the order of the day

Around us are war, hunger and destruction
Everywhere unity is just a word on lips 
And grinding of teeth the dessert on plates
Where is the love when mothers nightly cry 
And the bereaved canít be comforted 

Around the world I see countries and families 
Torn apart by war and strife, greed and hate
I canít see peace when the people are not free
Where is the love that blows with the gentle breeze
That every soul can breathe and sigh with smiles

Where is the love when children disappear
And fathers are lost in deep agony 
Where do we go away from here to Hope
When darkness becomes our companion 
And our land is watered by bloodshed

Where do we go from here to Love 
When even the grass is uncertain of the next rainfall
When the haunting past storms into the present
And the future mourns of its failed mission
Can we find love again before hot sun overwhelms us

Where is laughter when defeat is our destiny
And how can we go away from seasons of despair
When the sun sadly walks us by to its place
And our tears become the cloak of our existence
Oh Lord, where is the love They promised
