Posted on June 16th, by Allysia Machielsen in Blog. No Comments

For all of you who attended the Open Mic… And for all of you who didn’t. We will share the poem of Dorothy Oger. She wrote the poem because she lost a friend in the terrorist attacks in Brussels. It was her reason to write a poem – it went viral! She stepped on stage and shared her idea. Believe us when we say… it is an idea worth sharing.

FOR LOVE

I shall stand for love,
even with a broken soul,
even with a heavy heart.

I shall stand for love,
for the world is wounded.
Not just my little piece of land,
where I am mostly safe,
where I am mostly well,
but our world, everyhwere.
Every day.

I shall stand for love,
because we need mroe light,
not more deaths,
not more power,
not more bombs.

I shall stand for love,
so that our children are safe,
so that our friends are sheltered,
so that our borders are ope.

I shall stand for love,
even with a broken soul,
even with a heavy heart.

You understaund why we gave her a moment on the red dot, right?
