** Ribbons **


Ribbons


Can we share ones selfish pain
with the wearing of purple
ribbons?

This, a sincere and empathetic gesture.
Emotions fathoms deeper, than our eyes view.
There's no greater loss, no more dastardly harm, inflicted.
No meaningless significance, the insanely inhuman evil, portray.

We, are with anger, compassion and vengeance.
All these, not will misfortune, reverse.
In alliance, our spirit invulnerable, setting goals for a
courageous victory over tyranny, discovering the solutions for
everlasting peace and good will.

Peace will prevail, historians have quoted wisely.
No such profundity, by itself, will ring
forever true.

Omnipotent Love, as is inherent to life.
The whole of its entirety, suggests a gathering for world unity.
Criminal terrorists, their submission, unfailing. An era of
human empathy and vigilance be our goals. Reinforced and
sacrificed by our heroes bravery.

The world listens to cries and cries with relentless compassion.
Ribbons of empathy, turning to a glorious rainbow for peace.

We need heed to our 'Omnipotent' legacy,
ever guiding in our efforts.
Peace will have reigned, and forever kept guarded.

Holding within the boundaries of human decency,
securing our immortal love for a -

Unilateral, Universal Family...
