Ashes of Hope
By David Smith October 5, 2009
Roseberg’s burnt down. The firefighters were there.
The mess and ruin a war zone to compare.
An Icon destroyed; a memory of Queen
Where people walked and excitement had been
Now only a memory to reshape and reform
And build a life as downtown is reborn.
Look at the ruins: the ashes of hope
Building the dreams; that’s how to cope.
The previous generations had exciting times
A precious thought while we are in our prime.
