Yet Shall We Rise

Yet Shall We Rise

A Poem by Dara




Like thunder rolling in the distance


voices merging to be heard,


anger rising in waves of resistance


from all over the world.


Rhetoric, which seeks to destroy,


bad decisions made in haste


people crying out for help


protesting too little much too late.


But in spite of the frustration,


confusion and pain


hope springs eternal


where love still reigns.


We may go down in flames fighting


for our dreams before they die


but like the phoenix we'll be born again


and from the ashes we shall rise.

Such thoughtful and beautifully laid words, DAra. p
