Ground Zero

Post by Travis » Tue Sep 11, 2012 8:30 am

I remember the day

The moment of madness

The chaos and corruption

As we soulfully searched

To find the truth

In the rubble of ruin

The soot and ash

The fallout of the forgotten

The missing buried alive

The images of people jumping

As flaming towers tumbled

Families and friends

Crying out for love lost

The windows to my world

Shock shaken



Watching the horror

Waiting impatiently

For hope to arrive

So helpless

Feelings of guilt

But thankful and blessed

As I kissed my wife

Hugged our daughter

Tales of courage

And selfless sacrifice prevailed

Rising resiliently

Out of the gray ash

This hallowed ground

Ground Zero



Etched in hearts and minds


Never forgotten…

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts. ~Marcus Aurelius
