Unless We Forget 9/11/2001 - Poem by Lorraine Margueritte Gasrel Black

I saw Heaven in the clouds
A place of freedom and light
In a land of diverse crowds
Living and respecting each person's rights
I saw a vision of this world
As a globe in the universe
Where we practised by the word:
Tolerance as a personal choice
If each of us could reach
That special inner peace
Then Liberty will teach
And hatred will now cease
Since I can make the choice
Between Heaven or Hell on Earth
Then my one singular voice
Shouts PEACE for what it is worth
I saw a vision in the heavens
As each day goes sadly by
Let us not forget nine-eleven
Or our Freedom for which they died.

    Well, I'm not going to tell you what I think about America, but I must say that you wrote a great work: sincere and well rhymed. (Report) Reply

    Lorraine,
    Yes we seek peace at all cost. It is too bad that so many don't like Americans because of our love of freedom and love of man and our untiring attempts to help mankind.. I too look to the clouds for one day my Lord will come..

    Blessings. (Report) Reply

    All the world has a gratitude debt with America, also those countries that believe the opposite. This poem expresses kindness to everybody. I want to return trust. (Report) Reply
