‘Compass’ – a poem

 

Compass

Throughout history
People have fought
not to be conquered or cowed
Throughout history
Communities have stood
tall, firm and proud
Throughout time
others have struggled to silence
words which needn’t be spoken
Throughout time
they have battled to break
spirits which will never be broken
Throughout the world
there will always be some
who spray hate across a wall
But throughout the world
there will always be more
who catch us when we fall
