A Cowards Will

I gift to you this world my child Alas its’ troubles I can’t tame Others efforts I have reviled On judgement day I’ll face the same. I’ve seen the mosque where people weep At times Christs’ church rocked to the core and God’s chosen placed in trenches deep Watched peace and love hijacked for war. Cowards choose to say they’ve failed So do not accept mans’ violent bent Hate speech is bloodshed thinly veiled Unity a gift from heaven sent. When imam, priest or rabbi call Hear love not hate to heal us all.

    I emotionally bent and twisted and teared up during the read of this all to true, sad poem. The only upside I can think of (for I have often thought about the issues in your poem) is that I believe all generations have felt the same concerning the world they're leaving their children. Beautifully passionate write. All the best ... CayCay

    Thanks for the comment. Your poem captures the sadness we all feel from such a senseless act.
