About the Poem
Publicized around the world, we all watched in horror. The ones that did this may have felt glorified. They may have even gloated. I am proud to say that what I saw rising out of the rubble was far more than anyone expected.
This poem describes what I also saw, aside from the horrific. What I hope they also see coming.

I Pray They See This Too!
I'm sure you watched
As it all crumbled
In deafening rumble
Glorified in the slow
Motion of your strike
But I also hope you saw
Rising in the fog
Of the disbelieving tragedy
People Helping People
No beliefs or boundaries
Holding back the hands
Emerging from a shattered land
Holding each other up
Tears remaining colorless
Blood remaining red
Bonds being made in the dust
In trust of fellow man
As we scream in harmony
Of the pain
Being all the same
Except for you
Be it known
We have called all Captains of Life
We will continue to pray
And feel our way in Navigation
By a much higher power
Than yours that must slay it
Your death sentence has made us stronger
You have colored yourself a failure
I pray you see it coming
And have no where to hide.
