Ashes of Hope

Ashes of Hope

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.
