a peaceful warrior

a peaceful warrior


next week

I’ll make a mark

to show my choice

and there will be

no hate

no fear

no injustice

In that decision


it will be

for the future

for the greater good


it will not be

for brutal killers




from over there

or right here


it will be everything

but that


it will be

for those who help

and those who care


it will be

for peace




the things

a peaceful warrior

would want


but before that



I’ll make a mark

for wife





I’ll pray

for her

Heartfelt poem, Ian, and it captures what most British people must be feeling today.
