THE BASTION

Your love, my Lord The bastion of my soul No enemy of your Word Ever, able would be, Its walls of devotion to Ascend For Hate, the kingdom of terror to Establish! © Demetrios Trifiatis 19 JANUARY 2015 *Boko Haram, Nigeria, just used a 10-year-old girl as a bomb-detonator, right after massacring up to 2,000 people. To these victims of terror I dedicate this little poem of mine! God bless their souls!

That's terrifying, but you did those victims justice with your poem. I pray for all of them, in the hopes of a better world, in the future.

My friend, M.L.K., thank you for caring! Unfortunately this situation will take more than the prayers of humanity to be eradicated! God bless you!

Beautiful spiritual dedication, Demetrios, I just read the piece, I think of my little 8 year old granddaughter and it hurts to see such innocents to be used for their own ugliness. I sure hope you are feeling better. Blessings dear friend

Oh, my dear poet. This atrocity will not go unnoticed by God. Surely, in judgment they will have to answer for their sins. Bless you for taking refuge in the bastion of God's love. A lovely epigram...as always. Filakia

Yes, my dear sweet poet. I did read a novel about the atrocities that the Pondic Greeks suffered during the genocide. They were also driven on the Death March along with the Armenians and Assyrians. It is very sad. What has happened to Northern Cyprus is very sad. :( Without restitution, there can be no healing. Thank you for your comments. Filakia!

Great to hear your church is doing all this! God bless them! Yes, there is no justice and justice will be done BUT we have to do our part to deliver justice in the degree we are able too. I feel for the Armenians who represent a large community in Greece and whom we consider brothers since we have suffered the same by the same people!

Yes, you are correct, of course. You have a wealth of experience in this area. We can do something on a personal level to alleviate suffering, my dear poet. I believe that...remember how the world is silent to the atrocities committed in our countries. HERE! The refugees from Syrian are dying in the extreme weather conditions. My church is organizing a trip to these areas to bring food, clothing, and needed supplies. They have opened a community center for the children and are offering them education. The sad truth is, my dear poet, that true justice will only come when Jesus comes again. The Armenian Genocide is YET to be recognized by the whole world. This is the world we live in, my dear. Bless you for being a voice for those who are suffering.

God certainly will judge the people that have caused that BUT we have to do something as well! Imagine if this happened in my country or yours, dear Eileen, would we feel comfortable thinking of their punishment in heavens or we would ask other people to help here and now?
