More than Names

20140223-003033.jpg

Names are carried, projected on a wall, no one could predict those towers would fall

The worst of horrors could not envision this dreadful mess when these towers were erected

Reduced in steel and ash, peoples names live on, engraved and hauntingly reflected

With stolen names along the Hudson River,

hateful people had a message to deliver

Lives of many cut down and sold short, introducing warfare of a different sort

Hate helps no one, helps no one fast, hatred caused these airplanes to violently crash

Taking lives, taken wives, taken fathers and men

They cannot take our spirit for that there is no end,

Resiliency and brilliancy, America will not lose,

this is the life we live, it is freedom that we choose

God bless America and every precious person dwelling inside of it, regardless of religion, race or creed

Christian, Jew or Muslim, allow love to identify your breed

These angels fly forever, forever on a wall, allow these names to remind us, we need to love everyone and all

The deed was done, it was cruel, dirty and rotten, but let these names not die in vain by sharing love, and they’ll never be forgotten

God bless our country, bless the north, south, east and west,

Give us love, give us peace, and give these families rest
