A poem written by Muslim Sirwan Mohamadi -- an Iranian refugee -- two days after the Christchurch mosque tragedies.
What more is there to be said?
When women and children are among the dead?
What is going through your head?
Now that 50 and more could be dead?
It’s up to us to make sure
That this doesn’t happen anymore
It’s not about religion
Or to what and who you swore your legion
It’s about humanity
Bringing peace and immunity
To each and every community
Yes, we are all in shock
|But together on heaven’s door we must knock
|God always opens the gate
Because he does not differentiate or hate
For it’s he who knows best
When laying victims to rest
And keeping them warm
No matter what colour, faith or form
So now we ask God for direction
On hatred and rejection
To guide us from above
So we can better love
Now stand with me to give all we have
To Linwood and Deans Ave
