Rise Up From the Ashes

country as flag
Remembering September 11, 2011Deny our vulnerability to death.
Tune out the terrorists' attacks.
Don't think about that bloody day
planes were driven into our backs.

Block out those events surreal.
Change the channel or station
to ones less prone to convey
the evil inflicted upon our nation.

Dwell not upon the human dramas
replayed in shock and awe reality,
the unfiltered, uncensored horrors
assaulting our nation's mentality.

Suppress the grief in September
when we joined hands in tears,
when our united will to recover
proved stronger than our fears.

Let's rise up from the ashes,
live as if we will never die,
and one day we will get there
to join the others by and by.
