Once again our hearts are broken,
Once again we mourn in loss
and anger threatens to derail
the love intrinsic to our souls.
Another strike to terrify,
To batter all belief in Gods.
No matter what Their Name or station
none could countenance this loss.
The innocent and uncorrupted
pay the ultimate in price,
Whilst those who call themselves religious
twist that faith and say they’re right
to kill and maim for greater glory,
Kill and maim for sake of ‘love’.
So we must stand, a world united
showing we have had enough.
Whatever creed or church we favour,
Which name we pray to in despair
together we must rise up singing
songs of hope and trust, so thereby
disavowing terror’s message,
Disallowing hate to grow,
Hold in our hearts this simple mantra
And let hatred go.
Cassie, this quite literally brought a whopping lump to my throat. It's a cutting piece of work with a message we all need to stand up and take notice of.
I genuinely hope this is nominated so it gets the exposure it needs; I'm out of votes this week.
