We Too Shall Overcome

Suspended clearly looking above the guilt held fast like a driving rain penetrating a soiled skin laced with sin Innocence celebration of love lost in shadows of the Thames undesirable burnt to dust in shame Gallant hearts held as one we too shall overcome unified in body and blood lies love

We all have blood in out bodies, we all have feelings, we all have hearts, feel love, feel pain. This is a universal and thoughtful poem for all victims of any act of aggression. Thank you for this, Tim.
