IN OUR DIVERSITY

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Jun 04, 2017

The very heart of England
Has suddenly missed a 
beat
As the lifeblood of 
Manchester
Spills onto the street.

Youngsters at a concert
Enjoying being young
Came from around the
country
To have a little fun.

But fun turned to horror,
And horror turned to
grief,
And grief turned to utter
shock - 
Shock, beyond belief.

But in amid the turmoil - 
That gentle stranger's 
hand,
The anonymous unsung
hero
That we find throughout
our land.

With tears of utter sadness
And flags at half-mast
We all stand shoulder to
shoulder
As we have done in the
past.

And we must think of
the future
With solidarity
Of a nation drawing
together
In our diversity.
