You Failed

We took safety within the company of one another.
We were safe on our own turf.
Until you came along, now there are no more safe havens.
You took that away.
You with your guns and with your deeds.
You meant to silence us, and to make us cower in fear.

You failed.
We will live.
We will continue.
Your actions will make us stronger.
We will be stronger.

Many of us are frightened, but we refuse to heed to terror.
We shall not hide.
We will unite with our brothers and sisters as together we form a formidable force.
You only strengthened our resolve and our resilience to change the world. We will not give in.

We will not be silenced.
─ Robert Confiant 13 June 2016
