In Respect And In Freedom Poem by Michael Hopkins

In Respect And In Freedom

Rating: 4.8


Many have died

Many more will die

We will remember

The ones who we loved

And

The ones who loved us

Our strength

Our resilience

Our fortitude

Will see us through these dark days

Those who we deceived

And betrayed

Will be inspired to end this madness

And

Find their own strength

Their own resilience

Their own fortitude

Inherited from countless generations

Who came before

And

Join with us

In a calm confidence

That will shake

And

Rattle the powers that should not be

And

Reason and love and faith

Will be restored in our communities

And

One day our descendants

We smile upon our memory

With

Thanksgiving and gratitude

For our sacrifices

For our strength

For our resilience

For our fortitude

For our faith restored in one another

And

For turning the tide

By

Revealing the great deceptions

That were intended to create a permanent

Prison for Mankind

And

Establishing

A world in which

We can live together

In respect

And

In Freedom
