The sadness I feel for the families and friends of three young Birmingham men cannot be easily described.The true strength of peace was shown in the aftermath of the August riots. I dedicate this poem with respect to Haroon Hussain, Shehzad Hussain and Mussavir Ali whom all lost their lives in the riots of August 2011.

Birmingham Riot - Muslim Peace......A Poem

Riot Birmingham
Three young Muslims mown down by a car
The most criminal act of the riots by far
They stood together to protect their street
From violent looters police could not defeat.

These brave souls were brothers in arms
They heard the sirens and fire alarms
An example of youth protecting their 'hood'
Standing against looters up to no good.

Their deaths are a tragic waste
They lay on the roadside an utter disgrace
Their community has banded together as one
United in vigil to mourn each precious Son.

One father has pleaded for peace
To give honour to his youngest, now deceased
He spoke from the heart of respect and love
He knows final judgement will come from above.


August 2011, Birmingham, Deaths, Family, Love, Respect And Understanding, Riot
