Grenfell Tower – Poem/Tribute

Grenfell Heart

What happened to you makes no sense, it makes me cry

It should not have happened – you did not have to die.

What happened to you makes you mad, it makes you cry

Children thrown out of windows though they cannot fly…

.

Why?

 .

There’s not enough water – London towers rise high

There’s not enough help! There’s not enough time!!!

 .

This is not a house of cards, but it surely burns like one

London fire caused more pain than their knives had done

This is not a house of cards – there are lives inside

Real life people, left behind, who shouldn’t have died

 .

I’m praying for you if you have survived… You’ll rise…

And for you who’s lost your loved one or many loved ones.

 .

I’m praying that those in power do all in their power

To prevent another fire from burning another tower…

.

Tribute to the victims of the Grenfell Tower fire.
