Bloodbath In Paris - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

The world wakes up
to the horror when hate
rules over the hearts
of terrorists, seeking
only to kill and destroy.

Darkness covers
the morning to
a daylight of tears
and mourning.
Lovers of freedom
are aborted from
celebrating life.

And yet, the call
continues to resound:
No amount of terror
can silence and destroy
the forces of solidarity,
freedom and democracy.
shocked about the massacre in Paris, November 14,2015
Lord, have mercy over hearts given to demonic hate.

Topic(s) of this poem: democracy, freedom, horror, paris, solidarity, terrorism, war
