A Cry for Life
After months of waiting prayers and hope a precious life was given stirring emotions beyond words and unarticulated yet Even the poet’s heart with all its depth and grand grasp of glorious life and living love and loving and all of its bright brilliant scope of passion and every emerald facet of emotion is left speechless at the sight of tiny toes perfectly formed Struck numb and dumb by a tiny flailing fist fighting furiously unseen enemies with cries unheard by millions who are crying dying I watch in fear as his future is shaken and rattles unheard I cry too
Written for a beautiful baby born of love three days before the World Trade Center buildings were destroyed by hate and plunged the world into war and suspicion against his fellow man. The world changed the day this child left the hospital. He will never know the freedoms his parents knew. Will the war be over by the time he is old enough to fight? Will he live to see that age?
