before the tears...for manchester

before the tears
before the cries
of those who were
injured
of those who
have
died.

before the tears
the music rang
people rejoiced
carefree,
as they sang.

before the tears
the normalcy
plans for their lives
their families.

before the tears
now broken
with grief.
as in shock we sit
still in disbelief.

before more tears
please stop all this hate
blood spilled
fixes nothing,
for
too many,
far too late.

rest in peace
those who lives
were stolen away.
as we the survivors
start this most
saddened
day.

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
