Even Stephen ?

Even Stephen had a right to life

But it was snatched away by the blade of a knife.

Snached away on the dark night 22nd April 1993.

Five or six youths with knives , if that is even Stephen ,I fail to see.

Even Stephen  had a right to an unbiased investigation

Did it happen … not at first  but his mother’s protests rocked the Nation.

It was not even Stephen what those boys did

It was not even Stephen that evidence and statements were twisted and hid.

Even Stephen had a mother true and strong

She has fought for justice for  him making sure she’d right the wrongs.

Was it even Stephen that you’ve  been robbed of twenty years.

Stolen , your future , your hopes and dreams and all your fears!

Was it even Stephen  that you had to die that night

But for changing bus’s you’d  not of seen those boys, not died in your final flight.

You have left a legacy its true  changed laws and procedures too

Was it even Stephen  that they laid a plaque for you

…..Was it even Stephen that they vandalized it several times too.

Even Stephen  when was it ever even for you.

      Thank you , this case has been rumbling away for 20yrs and cause much consternation. I was reminded recently of Stephen as there was a huge pop concert fundraiser in his name and his mother Doreen who has fought tirelessly for justice was guest of honour. …………. too many young lives wasted in the name of hate.

    Man’s justice is all about cost and expedience — so many Stephens cry out for justice — all over the world.

    Unfortunately the gift of choice is so tragically utilized ! We are often left being mere eyewitnesses ~ Faithfully Debbie
