Babies squeeze through their mothers passage and are then catapulted into life
Childhood can be nurturing and then we are forced into career choices
with responsibilities to earn a living so that we can pay the bills

Some are flung into traumatic situations
such as abuse, slavery, war and so much more …
None of us requested this but it comes with that package called life

Just as so many in Britain are catapulted into shocked mourning
as loved ones dead or injured with many more traumatised
their very safety and beliefs thrown into question …

Our prayers and thoughts go to them as they try to make sense
of such violence while a group of fanatics have achieved their goal
to spread fear and hate so we plunged into dark depths

For those who have a spiritual connection now is the time for prayers
for only peace love and compassion can serve us as we reel with grief
please support any catapulting into dark places, help them survive
