22 Mar



Wet Stones and Black Walls.

Flowers left in silence.


Gunfire and distant drums

Sadness and Tears,

Names appear

Emptiness and Loss.


Death and Honor.

Pain and Bravery.

Loss and Sacrifice.



The Tree of Liberty, thus sustained.

Blood and Pain

Patriot Graves

What Future attained?


Confusion and Fear.

Where does the path lead?

Forward, ever forward,

Never ceasing,

To the drum ever beating.
