Bells For Ukraine

Europe rang church bells for Ukraine
choirs sang their anthem outside embassies
of Russia.

Bells don’t defeat aggressors, nor songs
flying Ukraine’s flag won’t help
win this war

We forget Myanmar after a year
so many deaths and a genocide
UN is toothless

Yemen goes on being bombed
Syria weeps still with tyranny
No resolve

Ring the bells for Ukraine out loud
sing their anthem at Russian embassies
after all war is done

I've read poetry since I was nine and have written creatively since I was fourteen (probably long before that). After writing book reviews and social comment, I decided I wanted to write poetry. I have no formal training, but I surround myself with poets and their writing. I am honing my craft.
I have two published collections which I don't feel good about, but have been published by and other publications. I live on the south coast of England with my daughter. I am seriously ill.
