Your lives were cut short amidst our struggle
Your loved ones, you couldn't even give a cuddle
Daily and yearly, your sacrifice will our memories juggle
Forever in our hearts, you will always be
Even when the powers that be tried to bury evidence
To absolve themselves of judgement and grave sentence
They pitched their tents with the devil surrounded by a huge fence
Trying to make themselves untouchable
But you are our heroes, we light up - torchable
We will continually hold the torch for you
We will keep the torch burning for you
In solidarity of your gallant effort on the battlefield
In respect of the course, you died for
In the power of the message your courage wield
You are now forever part of our shield
We will keep the torch burning
And your death will not be in vain
This is not just words for gainsaying
We are not going to become those who hurt us
But we would seek to see justice for all
It won't be business as usual again for them
Thank you for your time.
My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.
My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
