9/11–We Lost the Battle, but isn’t the war of terrorism still thriving?

9/11 by Deborah A. Bowman

15 years from that which Americans have never recovered

Friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors … all beloved

Gone in the blink of an eye in a blasting inferno of fire

We lost the battle that day when we didn’t even know we were at war

But has it changed so very much?

Terrorists bringing death, destruction, and such

All around the world, in their hidden camps, glorified

Trying to totally erase a specific ethnicity … genocide

Acts of horror, devastation, blood and gore

And oft’times, they didn’t even know they were at war

Even within our sacred borders …

We don’t even know that we are at war.
