A message of hope from Brussels

I hope


That I can


Go to a concert


Music makes me


HAPPY!


I want to


Play football


Without being afraid


Along with my friends


To watch the Red Devils


And then to sit on a café terrace


Or to go something nice to eat 


Without afterwards


The whole world


Knowing about it


I want to


Go to school


Safely!


And talk


To Mohamed, Laura and Boris


So that we


Can share


Our sadness


And talk together


About our dreams


We have so much to share


Because we live


Here in Brussels


We have a life


Together


We have a


Multicultural strength


I hope


That the


Fear and


The hate


Don't destroy


Our love and friendship


Because what happens in


Beirut


Paris


Kenya


And in so many


TOO MANY


Other places


Hurts us


In our hearts


What we want to expel


Is not the refugees


Who are afraid of violence


But the madness


That refuses to recognise life


I am Christian


And not a terrorist


I am Muslim


And not a terrorist


I am atheist


And not a terrorist


I am Jewish


And not a terrorist


Terrorism has no


RELIGION


We


believe


in YOU


And in ME


And in peace


Worldwide
