Bullet Hole Roses

Joyful lives shattered to smithereens
Minds traumatised by deafening screams   
Innocence robbed... unrequited dreams 

Tattooed nightmares; blood stained hearts and minds
Blindfolded through fear by humankind
Our lurking enemy... undefined 

Yet out of bullet holes roses grow
Selfless acts of kindness, freely shown
Still... the world's wise souls, to war, say "No!" 

For in splintered glass and sawdust streets
Where bouquets are placed and candles weep
We'll regain our strength... we'll not retreat

Freedom, Peace and Love, they will prevail
Defiantly we'll stand, hate, not hailed
Heinous acts won't break us... you have failed!
