Mourning Sky

I wrote this after the 9/11 tragic act of terrorism happened. I am sharing it by request. Thank you. May we all continue to pray for one another as we still stumble through the horrors of that day.

Mourning Sky 


Won't you tell me why 
you took the light out of 
the morning sky 

So sad inside 
but I can't hide 
my soul has died 
after waking to mourning sky 

Crying blind 
trying to find 
a place in my mind 
without mourning sky 

Take away the tragedy and all that's left is demented hypocrisy 
leave alone my will to survive it's been a long time I've been alive 
mourning sky 

I fight the inner hate 
never thought it was too late 
that changed the day that fate 
broke the mourning sky 

Mourning sky 
mourning sky 

Clinging to hope  
that life remains 
mourning sky 
feels the pains 
sky tumbles forth 
and out of the blue 
hate grasps the life 
of me and you 
mourning sky

    The words are purely from your heart, can feel the touch of your pain. So many died and so many lied, some of us will never forget both.
