Unite

The world seems to have forgotten,

That when we do not unite,

When we allow hatred and exclusion to ignite,

We kiss our future generations goodbye,

We condemn them to lives full of horror and fright,

Leaving the EU is not a new lease of life,

Donald Trump is not some harmless guy,

When will we realise,

We have seen world wide tragedies begin with such tag lines,

“Make America great again”,

Do you remember the Nazis,

They too once started out,

A political party claiming to fight for true Germans lives,

I for one do not feel content sleeping at night,

Allowing such fascism and hate to rise.

Taken

I was always told,

If you don’t ask you won’t get,

So tell me why,

When he did not ask,

He still got,

No,

He took,

From my mind,

My body,

My soul,

Until there was nothing left for me,

No bruises to heal,

Nor tears to console,

No love left to give,

For if he had asked,

I would have said no,

Turned my back on him,

And let him go.
