Wish I Did

I wrote this in 1980. Compare this picture to the painting A New Dawn with the poem Please Listen. This is a photo from ground zero on 9/11/2001...

Love un-abided,
Children misguided,
Families divided,
Priests confided,
Freedom, denied it,
War, we can't fight it,
Armies collided,
Missiles sighted,
Visitors uninvited,
Fear, can't hide it,
Innocent excited,
Their pleas all quieted,
Relief unsighted,
For a world disunited,
My mother, she cried it,
Know how to reunite it?
Wish I did.
