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…..
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.
