Another 9/11

20 years later
On September 10th
The memorials begin

And I can't surf the wreckage
Of another tower
Or count the ashes 
Of lives sacrificed
In a Pennsylvania field again

We've been here before

Tomorrow I will remember
The moment the second plane hit
And how frantic I was to hold my daughter
Because I still could
On that day full of so much losing

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?
