Enemy attack


An unwelcome guest

Arriving without warning

Creating turmoil


Declaring warfare

Tearing all defences down

Gunshots- attack sleep


Army surges in

Denial and anger fight

In resistance


The verdict is clear

The invasion has begun

Captive, all alone


Though backup is near

This is a fight you must win

You still have your dreams!


Don’t concede defeat

Armour yourself for combat

With artillery


You have used before,

Multicoloured stripes

Of achievement’s glory


I give you my hand

Firm with compassion and love

To see your sun rise!
