Together – Shanti

As the footballers raised their fists,

To support #BLM this week,

As many remember the bullying,

The words that hurt their Souls,

That crushed many a child in their belief,

The colour of their skin,

Their culture and traditions,

Their uniqueness in a World troubled by divisions and divide.

A reflection about children, BLM, Togetherness and Peace in a World that sometimes feels so cold.
