Faces From Future Not


Haunt Our Memories


Their Names


Solemnly Read


Burn Deep At Hearing


They Come In Quiet Moments


Asking Have You Done All You Can


To Pay For Our Lost Futures


To Make It So


No One Dare


Do Such Foul Deed Again


Have You Paid The Price


Thrice Over


In Terror Purveyors Blood


For Each Time


Our Memory Has Brought Pain


For Each Questioning Child


Forever Hurt


For Each Soul-Mate Lost


For Each Future Not


They Just Keep Coming


Asking Such Simple Things


Why? Where? Who?


And Always


Has The Price Been Paid


So I May Rest
