Concrete monolith rise up into blackness
Shroud the veils of our unending sadness
Landscape scarred in the charred remains of no escape.
There is no beautifying the clad clandestine
Witness their homes now, entombed /enshrined.
Touching heavens door the voices of angels and souls do speak of:
Clasping hands share our grief, in an frantic attempt to understand.
Upon the shadows of monumental failures What can one do to offer relief?
The seen can’t be unseen !
The undone can’t be done !
Community congregates and compromises upon the shock
Of the Neglected and Forgot.
A tragic State of affairs from cradle to grave.
Squeezed public services, we honour the brave.
The puppet masters pull their strings
stained with bloodied hands.
energies and efforts shift as the world watches
A destruction of social justice
Fan the flames of the personal Now political.
Remember their names and faces, ignore the front pages.
We are mourning you.
Truth teller come
Unify as one!
