Decommisioned IRA Weapon

By Ríonach Cawley, Transition Year.

I sat in the misty dew of the early morning,

A gun placed between my shaking hands,

Awaiting the signal that would test my fate,

my participation in honour of my courageous brother

Minutes slowly drifted by as I tried

to talk myself out of my future actions,

But I knew I was destined to overcome these fears

and so I sat patiently and waited.
