Courage

Courage

Courage, bravery, defiance
Strange words
When it comes to battling
The results of terrorism
People with bizarre ideologies
But if life goes on
What have the terrorists achieved?
Nothing senseless deaths
Bring out people to the good fight
Helping others their priority
Showing the rest of the world
How to overcome
Adversity, strife and mayhem
With generosity, love and light
They shall overcome
Showing people society can be good
As long as they filter out
The demons who seek to harm
Turning them in so they can’t strike
Before they use religion
Distorting it and turning inside out
To harm those who would demolish
For the sake of destroying
Spreading their evil ideology
These must be stopped
When they start to falter
Becoming ready to be prey
For the evil minds who then
Convert them to minions
Who care not for life
Just to destroy

It takes a village to raise a child
Let’s raise good people
With love and acceptance

And step in when we see wrong
Let's stand together strong
And brave
Don't let hate win
Love can lead the way
