A Poem: London's Protests - 07/06/2020

London your heart beat so loudly this week

Your people united as one to speak

We marched, we sang, we danced, we chanted

Justice for the fallen was vehemently demanded. 

Our feet are heavy and our voices weak

But a fire is roaring amongst your streets. 

While protests are the beginning of change and not the end

We will be the torch bearers of this re-ignited flame, 

Which till death we will defend. 

We ask that this passion may never burn out

Instead, that monumental change be brought about

Let our voices be heeded

May they never be deleted!

‘But let justice roll on like a river, 

Righteousness like a never failing stream’ - Amos 5:24
