The plane did not leave,
and many heave a sigh of relief,
and yet futures for those aboard,
and many more
still hang in the balance,
others are deciding their fate,
some for them,
some against them,
the vulnerable become more vulnerable,
the place of safety,
the place of hope,
has become a place of horror,
where treated as little more than criminals
the traumatised are re-traumatised….
Who will answer for this?
Who will cry out
for the voiceless?
We give thanks for those who have,
and yet many of us feel useless
in the face of a seemingly compassionless regime,
does it care about you and me,
how can it when it treats the vulnerable so badly…
I will cry out,
I will refuse to be silent,
even when I feel silenced,
I will cry for mercy,
support those working where I can,
I cannot put myself into the shoes of those still waiting,
but I will cry out,
Appalling behaviour on the part of the present cruel Government we appear to be stuck with in this Country. Prayer and action urgently needed.
