    This is a poem I wrote and s song for the innocent in wrongdoing by coercion.

    When all seems lost
    All I know in You
    The Energy of Hate
    Love just sees us through
    Our Identity is key
    All humans in ourcworld
    Realise the stillness of peace
    Let no-body confuse
    Life-giving eternal faith
    Dignity, hope and clarity
