BOSTON MARATHON

BOSTON MARATHON

(Dedicated to the victims of Boston’s marathon)


How many times the beast
Of malice,
With Its claws the flesh of humanity
Has apart to tear, 
Before the righteous up united would
Stand
And put an end to this dreadful 
Fear?

*As a former marathon runner myself, having taken part in many races, I am 
very much touched by this heinous crime against the innocent and the sports!

    This is very touching coming from you that live in another country. It feels so good to have your support. I'm glad that you were a runner too. My brother was also a runner. Thanks for sharing..... Lucilla

    And your postscript touched my heart. For all those who love this sport, this wholesome and healthy lifestyle, to have such an unspeakable scar, makes it even more personal.....I'm so sorry. My heart breaks for the world when such evil could target the innocent.

    I agree completely with your write my friend! Such claws that are dug into humanity that do find its way to tear apart those that are righteous, and only those that are united can put an end to the tearful event in the future (such is my semi-interpretation of your poem)! It's so sad that this has happened, that someone would want to do this at all, that he or she would want to hurt innocent people and children! This is a perfect piece on this subject my friend! What a Great Work!
