Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    

Seekers of Death Sacrifice Their Own

A Nation that stands together holds a strength of courage like no other, this is a weapon so powerful no arrogant enemy can better.

Without needing a reason

Evil invades normal living

Hurling missiles raging down

Targets whatever it likes

Fear tries to flee

Nothing or nobody safe

Homes, Schools, Hospitals hit

Dismembered bodies litter streets

Death has his day

Counting colossal human cost

Body collectors tireless sadness

Bloodshed rivers flooding hearts

Hope rises from devastation

Weeping souls pray relentlessly

Everlasting peace ending pain

Clearing dark Ukraine skies

Liberated faces searching answers

Instead of airraid shelters.


two years - too many graves
