What a day!


Thank you all for your patience with me at this time of extreme business and little inspiration :)  If you follow my other blog, you may skip this, but I wanted to share it with those who do not follow over there because it is about 9/11.  You can find the post here if interested.  If not continue to the poem below.

And Yet

Standing tall

Above the crowds

Proud and distinct

An invincible

beacon of strength

And yet

We watched you fall

A horrific event

Death stood in your place

You were defeated

And yet

From the burning ashes

Arose a spirit of hope

and fellowship

as a people stood tall

in your place

that day.

What has this event inspired in you?

    • Thank you. That’s a good thing to be inspired to (awkward phrasing??? lol). I bet you did that before, but it sure did put things in perspective in our world.

      • yes it’s always awkward ——– this day
        no matter what – it’s stuck in all our memories and i think that the only way to unify is through remembering …….xx love xx

  4. Reblogged this on Poetic Parfait and commented:
    Today has so many meanings attached and I debated whether to post. Then I read the poem in this post and wanted to share. This Tuesday I skip the tunes feature but offer a poem to inspire instead.

    • Aw, thank you Christy!! I’m glad you liked it. This day has so much emotion attached to it, and that’s good because it keeps 9/11 in mind. Angie

    Great work of poetry!! This poem inspires me to help others in obedience and servitude to what needs must be met. I remember and will not ever forget! Thank you.

  7. Angie, this is simple yet POWERful. You got me at the first ‘and yet’ and the next and the next. Perfect buildup. Nice pitch. Moving.
