A plume of smoke rises from a proud city,

The whole world stops to show pity.

A cowardly act of violence,

Are the perpetrators mindless.

The city of Manchester won't bow to your hate,

Nor will the rest of our state.

22 innocents lost,

Is this what freedom costs.

Many people call us  broken Britain,

But up north we don't tend to listen. 

in and around Manchester people did all they could,

Proving this world still has some good.

22 lives taken too soon,

With many more still in the operating room.

In our hearts the victims will remain forever,

And the people of this world will stand together.

Against the hate,

You want to create.

These attackers think they're strong,

Well they are sadly wrong.

    A wonderfull message of unity
    Surrounding a disgusting tragedy
    Those poor young people and thier families never deserved what happened to them
