In Loving Memory of Sophie Lancaster

By
Taken to soon,
By prejudiced hands,
Forever in our hearts,
A part of the sky and land.
Your death will not go in vain,
Blind eyes now see,
For simply your name
Makes our deafened ears aware.
We can no longer ignore what was
What is, and what will continue to be,
We must step forward,
Protect those in need.
You are in the very air we breathe,
Urging us stand up to the very hate
That made your body bleed.
Your soul is not broken
And you live on in our hearts,
An eternal flame of hope,
To show are saddened souls,
Love is greater than hate,
Greater than any shadow that could ever take hold.

I really like this one. It's SO true. People like Sohpie should not be the ones to pay for prejudice people's mistkes they made just because something was different.
