Remember

The Daily Post prompt today is ‘stroll’

Today

I stroll, walk

among the flowers,

beneath the trees,

along the river.

I can,

without fear,

because once,

some brave men

and brave women

said no,

to abject depravity,

and though they died,

more came after

and drove the darkness away,

so I may stroll, walk

among the summer scents

and remember.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. It would make life easier if we were amnesiac, but something I cannot bear is that not only were so many millions killed horribly and needlessly, but that they should now be forgotten.
