just five years old, her parents dead
no one around to keep her fed
the little girl to death did yield
her body strewn upon a field

they needed fighters for their war
been using kids just over four
the little boy they strapped with fire
then told him when to pull the wire

Salem was the place she loved
her town seemed blessed by God above
until the day her neighbors changed
upon a pole her body hanged

he never spoke against the king
to challenge God was not his thing
an evil bird defamed his name
a dungeon dark, his claim to fame

all of the innocents who died in vain
all of the mourners who felt the pain
all of the billions who lost it all
all of the souls who had to fall


...  are not forgotten

THEY ARE THE TOMORROW PEOPLE!
how many innocents over the millenia have perished in vain?

John 5:28,29; Acts 24:15

Beautiful poem,
The hope for resurrection it's the
most wonderful all promises that one could ever receive:)
Amen to a better world,  for "the tomorrow people"
