An Angel In Heroes Clothing

Recommended Posts

I wrote this on June 22, 2002 after a visit to New York city and the memorial at ground zero.

Heroes come in all shapes and size

And on that one day, the Angels did rise

To protect New York City, and the families they lost

They put forth their lives, no matter the cost

They entered the buildings, to save those inside

Then sprouted their wings, and flew into the sky

They were not greedy, or selfish to care

They?d soon lose their lives, so others?d be spared

They just did their job, or that?s what they say

We all pray our jobs, never end up this way

They?ll forever be written, in history books

But feel all their presence, when you take just a look

The heavens were filled, on that tragic day

With hero clad Angels, leading the way

So those that they saved, who start life anew

Will always be saying, we?ll never forget you

TUF, it doesn't mean that they aren't read or appreciated for what they are and the message they bring if they are not replied to :) You can see by the number of views how many people have looked at the work on the forum, and I know I always walk away learning more about the poster without feeling obliged to comment at that moment.

Aaron knows I'm a big fan of his writing and always enjoy reading it :D

Thank you guys. Suzy always has a way to make a person feel good. This poem was very hard to write as the situation really invoked a lot of emotion. It was so hard to see, especially since there was still dust on the sidewalk and buildings with windows completely gone. Nothing but a big hole leftover...

~Musical Interlude~

Hole In The World

There's a hole in the world tonight,

There's a cloud of fear and sorrow

There's a hole in the world tonight,

Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

They say that anger is just love disappointed,

They say that love is just a state of mind

But all this fighting over who will be anointed,

Oh how can people be so blind

There's a hole in the world tonight,

There's a cloud of fear and sorrow

There's a hole in the world tonight,

Don't let there be a hole in the world tomorrow.

Oh they tell me there's a place over yonder,

Cool water running through the burning sand,

Until we we learn to love one another

We never reach the promised land.

The Eagles
