FALLEN SOUL
In Memory of Rhys Jones
Murdered wantlessly at the age of 11
Summer 2007

When deep in the heart of a soul
you keep your innocence, robbed of a life, of a breath
robbbed of an intention to do good any more
blessed are the children who shall inherit the earth
robbed are the children that play at life on earth
evil snakes around its corner, sniping you
like black tar that maims for death, holds firm
at the end of your tether of life
you will always be seen as a brightness for
those who mourn you, special and innocent
with your life robbed like a villain in a
bank
sleep well young one for you now deserve your rest
amongst the righteous and for ever more
