A dedication to the victims of the Manchester Attack

Since coming to University in September Manchester has become a second home to me. The spirit of the city never fails to impress me and I am proud to be a part of such a bright, cultured and inspiring energy. Hearing about the recent attack at the Ariana Grande concert left me in a state of shock and so here is a small tribute from me in the form of writing to all those innocent lives lost that night. RIP ❤

On the 22nd of May 22 lives shone bright

On the way to what they thought would be a magical night

With songs in their hearts and stars in their eyes

Those innocent souls now reside in the sky

In rainy Manc, we work hard like the bee

And like the bee we will unite and stand equally

So this is for the boys and girls who will never again sing

Never be able to dream, for evil has ripped their wing

But our hearts don’t carry hate and we do not slander

For we are Manchester, and we don’t look back in anger.
