Genocide Survivors – Poetry of Hope and Peace

Genocide Survivors

By Talin Mari

 

On this day of sorrow,

So many lost their lives,

With nothing left for tomorrow,

They unwillingly said their goodbyes.

 

In the light of hope they existed,

One step brightening another,

Hope brought by the unanticipated,

Since a life of racist hate brings sorrow.

 

Waking now to a blank slate,

They walked effortlessly forward,

With love in their hearts and their fate,

They moved to the sunrise and onward.

 

Feeling lights of love in the soul,

Shunning hate to those that are ignorant,

Preaching kindness to heal the heart’s hole,

They embraced each other’s scarred dents.
