Anonymous – Stirring Emotions

Anonymous – Stirring Emotions

Gloriavale – just that word stirs so many opinions and so much emotion.
Warring ambivalence describes it best
Of love ones still trapped in a system of false beliefs but still loved in spite of it all
Nothing is simple and no truth is just straight
Memories of childhood lived and loved
Of sweet innocence yet untouched
But people were hurt by those who sheltered our hearts and guided our feet
The sins of our fathers need not be our own
But shame and justice they clash all at once
Facing truths we would rather not see
Incessant voices rises to condemn while others join the clamour to vindicate
There is good to remember but bad we must never forget
Moment by moment each day must be lived untarnished by yesterday
The future hope that our children can be free from the heartbreaks that shaped our past
