A strange and solemn skyline…

    I originally wrote the poem “The Question” on September 11th, one year ago in honor of those that perished when the towers fell. Once again I dedicate it to the innocent victims – those that died needlessly, and those that died valiantly that others may live. God bless them all. May we never see a day like this again.nyc-trip-018.jpg

The Question

 

Confused, we watch as towers fall

And cry as unnamed soldiers die

Mesmerized and paralyzed

By the scene played out before us

And when the day is said and done

We turn to heaven, you and I

And ask of God, please tell me why

Have you seen the earth?

Was this deserved? What did we do?

What is your world now coming to?

 

Confused, we watch as towers fall

And cry as unnamed soldiers die

Mesmerized and paralyzed

By the scene played out before us

And when the day is said and done

He calls from heaven, to you and I

God asks of us, please tell me why

Have you seen the earth?

Was this deserved? What did you do?

What is your world now coming to?
