Orlando - Poem by Angela Bridgman

Orlando - by Angela Bridgman (for the forty nine)

They fomented hate for years
Now give us crocodile tears
But they care not
For my sisters and brothers
My family just “others.”

Nine and forty souls were lost
My transgender heart tempest-tossed
Their gentle souls
Cut down by a gunman’s hate
They did not deserve their fate

Carry on, we will and must
We will fight for what is just
Sadness today
But one day our hearts will sing
While they soar on angel’s wing

Written on June 14, 2016, two days after the tragedy.
This was the hardest poem I ever wrote, the words were RIPPED out of my soul.
