September 11th

This is a poem I wrote in the early days after September 11th.

Please speak out for peace today.

Resolve for Disintegration

Trapped inside
Steel hearts and concrete veins
Shattered, torn from safety
Red, white and blue
The color of blood
That bleeds from a gaping wound
A symbol now a hole.

Hatred, ignorance
Beating the same drum
Of death and sorrow
Though tears fall
No one to prevent the flood
Question the truth
A lie now uncovered.

Tomorrow beckons
We answer without fear
A nation’s solidarity
Excuses the carnage
Waiting in the wings
Exacting almighty revenge
Horror now displaced.
