Pop’s Peace On Earth

March 7, 2017 4 Comments

8 years ago, papa passed away. I used to think his death left an empty space inside of me but now I understand that this space was created for me to keep his legacy alive.

I can never give up on this country because of how much he loved it. Please listen to my favorite song of his called Peace On Earth. It was released in 1998 but, like most of his songs, it still resonates with us to this day. Here’s one of the verses from the song:

I come in peace
Extend my hand to the next man in sight
No need to fight: black and white, red and brown unite
All the peoples of the world we got to make a stand
Cos I can’t understand why a man kills another man
Where is the love and respect? I stand corrected
To be protected is a right of all
We expect that the safety of the young is the safety of us all
And if we kill ’em all then that’s the beginning of our downfall
Appalled by the apathy of the administration
Students demonstrate while somebody’s on vacation
Syndicates lurking in the underground like a plague
clues are vague when it’s clearly gang-related
I’d like to see the day when we can walk without fear
Without having to hear gunshots ringing in your ear
I pray someday that we can all be getting along
Singing a song we can be singing all night long.

♥,
Saab
