There’s hard times again

in these streets of our city.

But we won’t take defeat.

And we don’t want your pity

because this is the place where

we stand strong together

With a smile on our face,

Mancunians forever

Because this is the place in our hearts and our homes.

Because this is the place that’s part of our bones.

Because Manchester gives such strength from the fact

that this

is the place.

We should give something back.

Always remember.

Never forget.

Forever Manchester.

Choose Love Manchester.


Taken from Tony ‘Longfella’ Walsh’s poem performed by himself at the Manchester vigil on Tuesday 23rd June.
