Written in tribute to the Boston Marathon survivors in January of 2015.  Dedicated now to the people of Brussels.

Ignore the smoke of fear
Be not afraid

Midst the debris of hate
Do not look back

A saddened nation cheers you
A shaken world observes

Shed not tears of despair
You will not be defeated

To finish is your destiny
Freedom is your prize


About oldmainer

I am retired and live in southern Maine with my wife and two dogs. I started Oldmainer as an outlet for my occasional opinions and random observations, with some poetry thrown in. I welcome anyone that wants to kick back and join me here on the porch, exploring all the gifts we have been given and the memories collected. Thanks for stopping by.
