Terrorist Atrocity

Jpeg
Send Love To Nice

 

 

I wrote and posted this poem originally following the Paris attack and sadly, the terror continues across the World, with this latest horror suffered in Nice. My thoughts remain with all those who have lost their families and friends in this and previous devastating attacks…..

TERRORIST ATROCITY 

Such sadness surrounds this July monstrosity,

a vile and deadly terrorist atrocity!

Someday those responsible may suffer for their sin

but against democracy they’ll never win….

 

 

Sudden death, caused by those who’ve lost sight

of humanity, as they continue their bloody plight,

leaving us to mourn precious souls who lost their fight,

on these blighted and horror filled dark days and nights…

 

 

So now once again the World unites

and looks up to the light.

Like the phoenix, we must rise high above

to stand true and strong in our love,

sharing our grief, sadness and true pity

for the tragic losses in our beautiful cities.

  2. Poignant, powerful. Honestly, not sure of what else to say. Shame we couldn’t concentrate our creative efforts on flowers, the stars, and love. The sorrow in our hearts require that we express our pain. Great write. I hope one day the hate will disappear.

    Have a lovely weekend.

    1. Thanks Sumith – it’s so sad that we don’t even understand what the battle is for… We are all just humans living on the same small planet within the same universe… x

        1. Ooo how lovely – It’s 6 a.m. Sunday morning here now too with no hint of sunshine on the cards for today – The summer here in Manchester has been non existent so far.. However we are told that on Tuesday we are going to have 1 day of sunshine and it’s going to be the hottest day of the year so far .. I’m not going to hold my breath though. It sounds perfect – I love the cool sun – what season are you in – it sounds like a Spring sunshine? Enjoy! x

          1. We’re actually in winter, believe it or not. So the sunshine today was lovely and very welcome. It was also very windy (which dried all my clothes!) so I can’t really complain.
            Enjoy Tuesday, and it’s predicted sunshine! xo

          2. Well weather wise then it sounds like we’re sharing similar times – probably just a bit wetter. Oh lovely – freshly dried wind blown washing.. For me it’s been the tumble drier all year! x
