I wrote this poem after 911. To those that lost their lives and those that carry on...


God may not give us the answers

For all the senseless deaths as we pray

But, from him we will find the strength

To help us get through this blackest day

A country mourns for thousands

As the world mourns now as well

For in the blink of an eye we have witnessed

How heartless terrorist's can put us through hell

As the smoke and the ashes now settle

And as the wailing sobs slowly subside

We can only look around in shock, pain and fear

Still not knowing the answers to "why?"

Comfort those around you

Courage will be found, learn and move on

Band together as one to build anew

United as one we will always stand strong.....
