Seeking Justice for 72 people for 72 months Each month that went by Each soul that passed away For all to know In our hearts they are here to stay Each second of every minute of everyday They are with us Their presence never went away We cherish their memory On the day they were from us taken away Seventy-two beautiful souls Seventy-two months now here I say For our loved ones it feels like just yesterday For them our hearts grow fonder Seeking justice for them our resolve is growing stronger Justice and Reconciliation after such disaster Up to now is a complete and utter blunder The government in its wisdom Have admitted they are partly to blame The council in his denial is still the same Continuing in their business as usual Claiming their legacy work Claiming active listening Whilst all they hear is noise and thunder Which makes us all wonder Will they ever awake from their slumber NHS in their insight turned a page Their cultural competence training to GPs Which has just last month started A gigantic win dampening the rage A true victory on the north Kensington stage The Westway Trust extended us an olive branch Understood our plight Our community’s right Right for our voice to be heard Right for our mind and body to heal Right for our spirit of gratitude to feel 72 people now 72 months didn’t die in vain That life is not just suffering and pain Our journey to wellbeing and resilience is our gain On the top of our voice we say The 6th anniversary is not our final station Only the Truth and reconciliation can be our destination.
Creation: LORD IS RIGHT On this Fifth Grenfell anniversary year Remembering you is very dear Rest in peace my family Rest in peace my friends Your shining light went out before time Yet all souls will taste death all the same Not a day goes by when you are not remembered Yet for us you are not just a memory Your continuing presence in our life is your victory, We promise not just to build a fitting memorial We shall celebrate your lives in a fitting legacy Five year went in a flash, a wink of an eye As we gather together, different faiths and pray Let all of us together say Pain and suffering will never blight our heart Let it be full of love, blessings and compassion Let all of us together say Oh Grenfell – Forever in our Hearts Oh Grenfell – Forever in our Hearts Though our journey has been full of adversity We, In the beginning with Anger we were MAD Then afterwards with our Loss we were SAD But now the Wisdom made us GLAD To see humanity at its best in our support and in solidarity, As we and the world remember today That life and death live side by side Like Ebony and Ivory in a piano keyboard Our message is love and peace to the world Our message is love and compassion to the world Forgetting our loved ones is not an option Forgiving is our understanding and intention Getting Justice and truth is the question Well-being and resilience is our destination Compassionate and Merciful is our lord Lead us all to the straight path The path of those on whom you bestow your grace Guide us away from strife and fight To gratefully cherish your blessings day and night Our faith in you dear Lord all you do is right Our quest for justice can only be delivered by your might.
