National Poetry Day Message Poem by Vanessa Holder

To That Terrorist


To that terrorist,

that creeps up in the night and strikes,

then disappears

and gets ready to strike and strike again.


To that terrorist,

that makes children cry,

that now is blowing up our history,

and leaves us here to die.


To that terrorist,

that murders in the night,

that is tearing the world apart,

now makes us fight.


To that terrorist,

that is always in the shadows,

but with no warning,

takes us from the light.


To that terrorist,

that thinks that it’s ok

to sneak I and out with the guilty,

to give us such a fright.


To that terrorist,

that nobody knows,

the one that holds us all hostage,

when one disappears.


To that terrorist,

we will survive,

if you fight now,

we will survive.
