This is about the UK Manchester bombing that happened last year when 22 people were killed most of them children when they were at a concert to watch Ariana grande when a suicide bomber blew him
self up killing 22 people this a a lot of feelings in my house as my wife and 2 girls were at the arena and they witnessed the bomb exploding and people dyeing around them if it had been 2 min
early they would of had the full impact of the bomb but lucky for us they survived thanks to my wife and the way she got them out its a night i wish not to go through again

Stand together


I'm crying on the inside, so you can't see the tears

When the ones you love have come close to death

How can there be pain in a place where there was so much joy?


There is so much sadness all-around boys and girls screaming for their mums or dads


Mums and dads searching and shouting for their children, but no sound can be heard


You see children covered in blood and adults trying there best to comfort those who need it the most,


The Smoke covered room is so ghostly silent alarms sounding out a high pitch ring


It all seems to be in slow motion as it all starts to become clear as the dust starts to clear


It all starts to pick back up the screaming the shouting it’s a bomb it’s a bomb get out get out


People lay there all covered in blood the screaming is slow loud, as people run you see,


Children getting trampled on there just running no matter what to get to the exit.


So, what was supposed to be a good night out for children and parents turns into a nightmare,


And as that night settled down you got to ear of one man one bag who caused all the devastation


One coward of a man, a man who was out that night to cause mayhem

One coward of a man who killed so many people

One coward of a man who killed children who were there to watch the favourite singer.


From this deep sorrow - from this painful night, how can people go on and find a way to be strong Will people ever again enjoy life's sweet song.


Manchester and the people of Manchester did and so did the rest of the United Kingdom

Everyone pulled together as one, as one to not let them win not let them take away our way of life and the freedom we all share. RIP TO ALL WHO LOST THEIR LIFE THAT NIGHT
