Sonnet for TDOR



Today we honoured all those lost to hate
The lives stolen before their time was due
And for them the day is now far too late
Yet in their name we build a better view
No more hiding behind the closet door
Denying self to please the social right
No going back to how it was before
We stand proud in the silent vigil light
Another name enters our humble thoughts
Another death that must not be in vain
We live in a world with folk of all sorts
Yet hate can still leave an unwelcome stain
We shall rise up from tears and stand above
For all those we’ve lost and all those we love

About Jez Farmer

I am a freelance writer and poet and started writing after raising my two boys as a way of discovering just who Jez is. That is still very much an on-going project but the journey so far has introduced me to many wonderful friends and fellow writers through an ever growing love of poetry.
