Days of Remembrance

Funny how certain days spark our remembrance.
We talk of things with similar resemblance.

How about the runners in the Boston bombing:
The screaming children in Oklahoma sobbing!

That awful day when Pearl Harbor was attacked:
These were the days of infamy, that is a fact!

Then that time our men went to war.
Fighting a battle beyond our shore!

When they came home they were criticized.
Now why are these wars so politicized?

We now remember the towers of nine-eleven.
On that day there was a lot of talk about heaven.

Since these incidents are long gone:
The talk of heaven brings a yawn!

As for me I just don’t get it!
What’s the point, what’s the benefit?

In remembrance, have we learned?
Is our government even concerned?

Yes, I know they can speak a good line.
They’re ultimate goal is to confine!

Yea I think the victims deserve respect:
But what they stood for, many neglect!

Now please don’t take me wrong.
Those who fought were very strong!

Many lives were sadly lost.
And it came at a great cost!

Families mourn day and night.
All because of hate and spite!

Life is precious in God’s eyes.
Each loss brought so many cries!


Here’s the day we should remember:
It is that day in late December!

It shouldn’t be limited to once a year.
This day announced that our God was here!

In the midst of fear, it was a day hope!
The day gave vision, so no need to grope!

In Jesus’ death we witnessed evil.
But when he rose we got retrieval!

Evil can only bring us down!
Therefore, I look forward to my crown!

I know some will not agree:
But in Christ we are free!

Now, with all that being said:
Please don’t look back, look ahead!

Keep close to you his loving promise.
Don’t ever be a doubting Thomas!

When the time comes to remember:
Look for God’s bright and shining ember!

    Congrats on the featured poem. It seems only tragedy brings us all together as Americans for a short time. The government feeds off a separation of the classes and races. They fear a truly UNITED States.
