Prayers For London

Rating: 4.2

Sadness and fear grip the populous city,
Lonely tears now fall,
But healing will begin
And hatred will be vanquished by love.

Dedicated to John C. Newton,
I hope everyone you love is well!

The world woke up to sadness today....and it is a shame that so many have to die or be hurt. I hope their families can have some peace. Good poem.

Thanks, Uriah. 'Sadness and fear' are certainly what Al-Quaeda and others hope to create and spread. But those of us who sat under the stairs or in the shelters night after night as the bombs fell on London not all that long ago will pass on that spirit of defiance. Schoolchildren these days often laugh at the voice of Winston Churchill urging us on to defend ourselves and liberty. Maybe they'll give him more respect now.
