Lyra McKee

Standing for liberty,
honesty, truth.
Passion for transparency,
to understand,
report without bias.

Devoid of thought,
empty of compassion.
Smelling blood,
random act
bought silence.

One person
denied another.
Impartiality stilled
in moment of time,
depriving all.

Her need
is ours.
A voice murdered
by chance,
ignites thousands more.
