                             America the Free  ~             America the Brave ~
                           Freedom with price              Capitalism attacked
                            the many taken                   hearts broken still
                              one World                           try to rebuild
                            sadness and tears               fall hard with fears  
                            guilt by association             many accused still
                             souls evaporated                shattered dreams 
                            tears fall on innocence          left with anger 
                             The proud fearless             knew the inevitable
                              policeman fireman             many lives lost
                            grieving does not stop           12 years later    
                               New York city once          proud  & shameless 
                             refusing to let fears in          protecting ours 
                                left in shock still              question's unanswered                    
                               nothing learned                     nothing gained  
                                ready to attack                   many left behind
                              anger greets denial              anger meets rage 
                               unacceptable still                 refusing new love 
                            wanting days to rewind           let us go back in time 
                              acceptance  allowing           the victims leave in peace
                              the brave taken young           leaving us sadly old
                               haunting dreams                     lost spirits dwell
                               no answers to hate            never forgetting that day
                               Evil entered suddenly              unforgiving fate
                                entering our City                we stand with the fallen
                                 How to fix                            how do we Change 




           
            This can be read many different ways ~ This is a poem I am so proud to write ~

    This poem is amazing in its format , it says so many things differently " Refusing new love " this is history and should be noted.

    I wanted to make it for the readers perception , but I wrote it differently and then..opps , lost my baby ! so I rewrote it , and like how it was reading backwards , in line , all over ..the design being the falling towers ~ Thank-you My sweet friend ..I may let it stand for the month .

    Brilliant, visually and emotionally. Three poems in one. So many ways this can be read. I read both towers together in reverse an I was surprised how well it read.

    Wonderful poem Yvette. Very poignant! The lines look like a furrowing flag to me which would be appropriate I think. Warm thoughts, Ralph

    I must comment to my self !! Reading this a month later , when submitting a poem , sometimes words fall to the very side ..and it may be because the poem is long , so when posted ..I finally got it this way , the original format.
