6 years 1 month 5 days


6 years 1 month 5 days
of war
of failed goverment
of lost economy

6 years 1 month 5 days
of family members still lost
of futures still being shattered
of cancer among heros
of money, before memorials

6 years 1 month 5 days
when a president stood on a hill of rubble and promised justice
of the ememy who still is alive
the soilders who come home missing not only limbs but souls

6 years 1 month 5 days
of being afraid
of waiting for the next attack
of knowing that when it happens 1,000,00 will die

6 years 1 month 5 days
think back to what happened
and never forget
6 years 1 month 5 days
MORE THAN NUMBERS

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
