Remembering 9/11



united we stand image
                       I have not Forgotten ...

Sky clear- fresh - Breathe
Roar - crash- fire- Darkness
Silence - frozen - suffocating
Startled - confused - sunless

What? Help? How?
Eyes dart, hands grasp, feet urge
Conflicted - disarray - unfathomable
Aroused - safeguard - people converge

Another rumble, shaken , sway
Cries - narrow corridors - need to leave
Descending, following, champions rise
Obstructions - supportive - mindful to breathe

Shouting from others, step over, duck under
Now water is falling- the sprinklers up high
Blast of heat, glass is shattered, redirect this way
Out- out- pulling- prompting- pleads you must try

Heavy it feels, no air no sky
Solace is given beneath falling fire
Dirty covered faces searching - digging - fortifying
Climb over rubble of cinders and wire

No black, yellow, white or brown
Ashen faces, no names just brothers, sisters, One
All gray coherent shadows, surviving, humane
Freedom our tether, American, One

Americans heal- survive - transcend
Remember the honor that Freedom demands
Gray shadows now Steel and Strength
We are One, must Be One, American

Written by me, in Honor of the Brave and fallen Heroes of 9/11
