9/11 Poem

It's the ten anniversary of 9/11 and I thought I'd repost my 9/11 poem.

In God's Name

Allah –they yelled!
ramming our planes into our towers.
lost to the flames the buildings fell,
with few survivors.

Oh my God! We cried;
as we watched horrified,
trying to save them
many brave people died.

Jesus, thank you! That they live!
As people walked with feet of lead,
dusty tracks of tears they shed,
for what they suffered and fled.

Christ almighty! We did swear.
When the smoke then did clear;
our stunned senses not prepare,
titans once stood-- nothing a nightmare.

God there's more?
We learned---four planes
went out with evil intentions.
The pentagon succumb to mutilation!

My God! What happened?
A field in Pennsylvania was reshaped;
the ruin of flight 93 over the landscape,
passengers and crew---no escape.

Allah —thank you!
Prayed He from a cave in a hill.
For helping me to hurt them
where they feel it still.

In God we entrust.
flight 93 loved ones informed;
heroes they were transformed,
together the cockpit they stormed.

Showing us courage in all of us inborn.

To all of you who have read my poem,God bless you.**

Hi Jimmy,

I don't write a lot of poems but after 9/11 this was the only way I could express what happened.

Hi Merle,

Thank you so much.

That great that you were able to have a nice visit with your granddaughter.

You always have the best jokes.

Take care my friend.
