Towers of Pride (In memory of 9/11)

Two towers stood
Proud and resolute
Symbols of power
Symbols of hope
Men drunk with hate
Men despising freedom
Men devoid of hearts
Minds void of reason
Thought it brave to kill thousands
Crush towers and hurt mothers
They did not know
Hope is not in buildings
It is in a child’s eye
Pride is not in towers
It is in a marine’s mother’s heart
Power is not in terror
It is in a soldier’s sacrifice
Love is not in blocks
It is floating in every vein
Of freedom-loving men

As long as America stands people will look
At the resurrection of New York City
And they will say:
“Here Buildings fell
Here a Nation rose”
