God Would Smile

I used to think only young boy's
played with imaginary dangerous toys
today grown folks are killing one another
With weapons not imaginary like the boy's.

One nation obtains nuclear weapons
and gladly tells the world about it
then another nation tries to outdo them
Are their intentions to blow each other to bits?

It's best we enjoy each day we are given
and express our love for family and friends
because the terrible unrest in our world
Might eventually bring our lives to an end.

Why can't we express love for one another
replace hate and bigotry with undying love
our world would be filled with happiness
God would smile down at us from Heaven above.
