A poem for Nice

Every time when I think I can’t cry no more I wake up to reality.

Celebrating freedom is punished by a warped ideology

Men, women and children indiscriminately butchered by evil.

The only reasons are to cause fear and panic and to kill.

 

A man carries his child to safety, how will he ever to be able to explain?

Why is there so much hate and anger? The willingness to destroy, it is just insane.

A night where people from all walks of life, felt love and became friends

But this was seen as something wrong and a crime and had to end.

 

As so many times before, my solemn pledge will be.

Despite this malice I will keep my faith in humanity.

My thoughts are with the victims and the those that love them.

For love will conquer all, evil and hate we will condemn.
