Stockholm London Manchester Paris Berlin Nice - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

Stockholm London Manchester Paris Berlin Nice

I am an admitted dreamer
In my youth, I had hoped to see
Stockholm, London, Manchester
Paris, Berlin, and Nice.

I have gazed in awe at postcards
Of these places and its many sights.
Wished to win a trip as reward-
Being there would have been a delight!

Yet now I have read of the tragedies,
Of the violence and terror that plague
The citizens of these lovely countries
My dream coming true is rather vague.

There can never be a justification,
There can never be fearful acceptance,
When killing is used as a valid reason-
Then always it will face resistance!

There can never be any good in terror,
Because people have the right to be free
Be it in Stockholm, London, Manchester
Or Paris, Berlin, and Nice.
