I Heard Them Sing

I wrote this after the Manchester attack. Now, after Saturday's attack in London, it makes it hard to believe in the message of this poem... but I have to believe there is still hope, leading to love. Because otherwise... what is there?

And then sometimes
  out of the deepest depths
true Hope arises

When it feels like all has been lost
When it feels like Hate has won
One voice is enough
    to bring a whole crowd back on its feet

Just one voice with a simple message of forward motion
    One voice joined by hundreds    thousands    millions    of voices
         rising up in Love 

 Don't look back in anger          I heard them sing 
 Because if Hope is not the answer
  it may be the path
that leads us to Love.
