The Right to Say It

Desolation is all around
No consolation to be found

An empty desk before my eyes
Papa est parti.” a young girl cries

Men who twist a Prophets words
Turn sublime into absurd

A soulful journey is undertaken
My faith in man to reawaken

A million candles do I see
Lit in honour of Charlie

Whether or not I agree with what you say, you still have the right to say it.

  1. Refreshing to find some rhyme, some flow and message not intentionally obscured. Hope to see more during NaPoWriMo.
