Remember September

Our utopia bleeds







The sky is cloaked







In a blanket of ash
















Voices of the unseen







Strained








Terrified








Penetrate the calm







Of the ignorant world
















Questions are left suspended






Where the walls have fallen






And vitally important are






The answers that stay







Concealed








Crushed underneath the charcoal






Beasts that emerge with a
Flaming desire
To generate death









Innocence matters not






As the horror is








Repeated








When a roaring metal machine






Smacks into the tower rising above
The horizon
















People nearby flee







Running frantically but






Unsuccessfully as







A stampede of







Lung suppressing







Poison charges after them















Viewers sit frozen







Each face exactly the same





Mouths curved into








The “O” of shock







Eyes bugging out







Ready to fall out
Tears begging the eyes
To close
Even though they know
Curiosity keeps them
Focused; locked on disaster

For once,
Everyone in America
Thinks of someone
Other than themselves
Because all feel
Disbelief and Despair

For once
Since we’ve won our
Independence
All of the U.S.
Fears that freedom is







Slipping through the
Tightly bound nation







Less compassionate are those






Pulling at the threads







That are leaving a
Calamitous hole in our union

It is in
Times of crisis
That we choose to show
Our courage and dedication
That is mending the
Tattered ways of Americans

Yes,
September
Makes us remember
Who we are
What we can do
And will do
To protect our
Freedom and
Each other as well as
From one another
