‘The Sisters’
27/02/2022, written by Tim Johnson

Back to back
In the face of attack
We take the blows
The stones you throw
The insults to our face
Still standing strong
Speaking for those
Who conflict has misplaced
Side by side
We don’t stand alone
For the children who’ve died
Or still don’t have a home
Though we may bruise
And we may bleed
We choose
The hungry mouths to feed
We need no weapons
To serve as soldiers
Only words to reflect on
Both shoulder to shoulder
We may seem small
And the risks are grave
Through them all
We stand tall
There are children to save.
