An Ode to 9/11
Cascading towers, eroding hope, Unimagined devastation, beyond all scope; Sadness deepened, an enemy defined, Patriotism arisen, hearts realigned.
Fathoming not the hand fate dealt, A time of uncertainty, in His presence I knelt; I shall never forget innocence lost, For a nation at peace, an inconceivable cost.
Amazing resilience shone in our eyes, Though heroes have fallen; like the Phoenix we rise; With endurance, we soldier on to run the race, Thanking God for His sufficiency of unending grace.
Recalling that day, ten years come and gone; I will never forget, though life lumbers on; Remembering the loss, a sorrow so heavily weighed, For all Christ died, the price now paid.
He is my Refuge as the arrow by day flies, Wickedness banished before my very eyes; Under His wings, a place of dwelling, I unfailingly find, A truth worth telling: Salvation is mine!
Although the story here does not end, To God be the glory Who triumphs over sin!
