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!
