Her Voice Silenced, Her Song in Chorus Louder We Will Sing – Jo Cox tribute

“These children have been exposed to things no child should ever witness and I know I personally would risk life and limb to get my two precious babies out of that hell-hole.” ~ Jo Cox, RIP

Jo Cox MP RIP – murdered by right wing fanatic Thomas Muir of Britain First, an offshoot of the British National Party, this girls voice will live on, as a mother advocating on behalf of mothers fleeing conflict, she not alone risked life, but gave her life in the face of hatred.

No mere words suffice
For a mother slain
Just a thought and prayer aught
On the tongue remain.

Her legacy will be
Her deeds and her words
As impossible to silence
As the singing of birds.

In time there will be
Where war fires now burn
– Her name will be remembered –
When peace there does return.

Her voice may be silenced
But death is not everything
As one we shall, her song
In chorus together louder sing

Have your say...
