Words of Solace

Are we turning the page on events of the last few weeks?

For one person in particular, authorities seek.


The mourning has begun.

No-one has won.


Has the violent message moved things forward?

Are we dumbfounded and searching for the right word?


Candles flickering in remembrance.

How comforting the flames are as they dance.


Families and friends reach out to support.

Borders and customs aim to be vigilant with the passport.


But all who need help are in emotional turmoil.

Feelings of anger and hate are starting to boil.


Political and governmental manoeuvres are likely to fail.

But let us as move forward with peace and love – let them prevail.


‘The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything’ Albert Einstein
