    “Love Thy Neighbor As Thyself”

    He knew when He spoke these words
    Of a morning beyond our worst dreams
    That would shock past all comprehension.
    Humanity devastated
    Arrogance, abomination,
    Evil behind un-masked faces?

    Hope, the fuel that fed survivors
    Ordinary people, heroes
    In the wreckage, with one thought only
    To save people they never knew
    No matter nationality
    Color, creed was not important.

    He knew, when he spoke these words
    The test of anger’s raw demand
    For retribution, for justice
    When no real justice can be gained
    While people of all nations cry
    Against such mad depravity?

    What phoenix will rise from ashes
    Where innocence was lost in flame?
    Beware its soul-felt cries all those
    Who knew not the stuff that binds us
    To better thought and higher cause
    This space in blue where once stood dreams.

    A world now called to witness, waits
    To see the test of love or hate
    For one will speak, the other fail.
    Will humans, wretchedly tested
    Remember what he said to us
    Before he turned the other cheek?
    Still there, those Window On The World
    His eyes, His heart, His long time grief
    Aware of all in hearts of men
    The inherent self-destruction
    That comes with bitter fruits of hate.
    Is death the one who makes us hear?

    Who will take the first bite now
    That fallen fruit is in the hand
    And power to turn the earth to soot
    Resides at pain’s once open door?
    Who now knows best, who knows more
    Than One who spoke this simple phrase?
