When is it too late?

Do we need to destroy our world
To understand that we are lost
Building arms for peace
But preparing for war
Makes us all destitute
The harvest is without fruit
Are we the children of Ares
Are we lost to our blood lust
The reality of war is destruction
The reality of life is death
When we abandon peace
As the highest goal
When all we do is fear
Instead of trust

New International Version
"He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore."
