September 11 - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

The human mind remembers,
commemorates and celebrates
what happened in our history
of linear time; who could forget
when thousands got trapped
under a burning inferno
of buildings, smashed
by airplanes, fueled by
terrorists’ burning hate?

Innocent souls were laid
down in the Ground Zero
And for their innocence
each will be remembered
every September 11;
And let each celebration
declare an oath to sweep
the human hearts
from hate and revenge.
We owe it to the dead:
Only fill this world with love.
