Angels Tears

A tragedy occurred today And the sky bled From the heavens poured red rain Tainted with the tears of angels Singing sadly Swaying together Comforting one another Tragedy struck today A lad was killed,a man was slain As England's crying US, it's people in mourning A nation grieving A country shocked to silence Great Britain's heart is breaking Time stands still for this For the brutality of this attack The unfairness of it We the people leave flowers,cards Representing our tears for the family A carpet of colour Representing our fears Thousands of teary eyes Not a person dry near Our hearts forever wounded So England grieves One of our boys is dead Taken in the sickest way On a British street,during the day The country is screaming Disgusted at the disease of this killing Our lad hacked to pieces Cut to death We have never seen such evil in our country as this Angels are crying for him This unjustified killing Our boy slain In the silence is the song of Angels Welcoming him into heaven Sadly opening their arms Thinking it's too soon For someone taken so cruelly young This country's in mourning for him He a son,brother,lover,father Killed in the name of a God By men who hate this country Men who hate us Making people wonder Why they are in this country we love This country we fought for This country of ours

I'm sorry to say that I do not know who this was. I don't follow world news very much, and not my own national news either. This one really gets across your sorrow and anger. I recently knew a young man who died in a car crash. such a sad world!

There was a soldier last year that got murder in daylight In England, the whole country grieve for him and his family,
