A editors choice poem about the 22.july attack, Ut°ya, Norway, 2011



AWAY FROM THE BATTLEFIELD

Where do we go from here
where do we start..?
against this force who took
everything apart

How to get up again
from off this floor..?
You feel like you never stand
strong no more

But the sun don't hesitate to shine
The wind gonna push
those clouds aside
The earth will continue to move
The power of the people will be there for you
And so will always I

What can I tell you more
to comfort you..?
To linger the worst of wounds
no words will do

But you get up on your feet
just lean on me
There's a place in the shade to sit
away from the battlefield

And the sun don't hesitate to shine
The wind gonna push
those clouds aside
The earth will continue to move
The power of the people will be there for you
Out on the battlefield

Congratulations. In the context of the horrible "political statement" just made in your country resulting in the deaths of 92, the thought of "battlefield" is unfortunately and hauntingly vivid, and "where do we go from here" certainly not rhetorical.
