Poetry: “Solidarity”

A week since Brussels when this goes up; a poem inspired by the best sides of humanity that you encounter during such horrible times.

***~***~***~***

Solidarity

Stand together
Back to back
Even when
The wolves attack

Stay together
It is how
Mankind prospered
And survived

When evil rears
It’s ugly head
Brussels, Paris
Copenhagen

Beirut, Baghdad
Istanbul
The list is long
Goes on and on

In the face
Of all that death
That is when
We must be strong

Across borders
Religions too
All of us
Speak the same tongue

Raising voices
Shouting loud
“We will not falter
We will stand strong”

***
