The Year of September 11th

The Year of September 11th The year of September 11th The year my mother died The year the World and I Both sat down and cried The World, for all its tragedy Its rubble and debris I, for the mom who late at night Once rocked me on her knee The World it lives life different now It’s cautious and afraid I just don’t know how to live, And so instead I pray.
