A Thought For 9/11 (Poem)

Rating: 5.0

What was accomplished with the destruction on that fatal day?
Another false ideology by those who claim to God they pray

No different than hypocrites in this country who respond with hate
To add to the killing, the only thing gained is the mortality rate

Why don’t people have the courage, to speak what they feel?
To follow ones heart - is the only way a nation can heal

I believe the Lord said - love thy neighbor, not - do as thy neighbor
To receive respect we must earn it with the ways of our behavior

What is real and what is unreal - two different words but the same Meaning
For what we are, is not our true being, but a result of what society is Demanding

Courage is not to show the world the creature you truly are not
It is to be the true American that lives within you - which so many have Forgot

(I relied on the motto of a childhood hero of mine before writing this poem)
Davy Crockett said, “When you know your right, go ahead”

A perfect thought Dave and your childhood heroe's phrase is great. Nowadays left & right is entangled and they go backwards?
