9/11 Six Years Later
By Mary T. Hoffman
(Written 11 September 2007)

Today the rain, like tears from Heaven, falls
To mourn the dead – victims of those whose
Envy joins evil to destroy instead of reaching
Out to learn and welcome knowledge of Creator God
Who lifts the seeker to a higher ground of love –
Compassion for all that He has made.

When will we all learn to obey the Lord,
And stop creating gods in our own image
To satisfy the twisted, satanic longings
That turn God’s work into a hell on earth
For all the beings who were meant to share
The joy of His Peaceable Kingdom?
