Genocide: To the people of Rwanda

Massacre of innocent people
Lives and hearts divided
Death and blood
Macabre dance of death
All weapons befriended
All friends become foes
Children burnt alive
Women raped and killed
Human lives tortured
Human beings turn to devils
Taking lives
Now freed from hate
But willing to make peace
This is a new world
Though weather beaten
The survivors stand up
They fight back
With the beauty of love
With the beauty of shared togetherness
In this world of peace
We the dreamers stand in solidarity
