Run

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

Run
Ignore the smoke of fear
Be not afraid

Run
Midst the debris of hate
Do not look back

Run
A saddened nation cheers you
A shaken world observes

Run
Shed not tears of despair
You will not be defeated

Run
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 .wordpress.com 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.
