Chaos In Westminster

When did the world become like this?

When did we start to have terror in our cities,

Fear in our hearts?

 

Is it building to a crescendo or will

It peter out?

How many more have to lose their lives?

How can you fight an enemy you can’t see?

 

My head is full of questions, my heart brims with grief.

 

We have seen it around the world,

Too far away to touch us.

It gets closer and closer,

The attacks become more frequent,

The attackers more daring.

 

Compassion and pity for unnamed victims from an unknown land

Turns into fear for our families,  the loved ones who make up our world.

 

When will it end?

Could we have stopped it?

What can be done?
My head is full of questions, my heart brims with grief.
