Moral Equivalence to None


Living our normal lives
We were awakened with a crash
The tragedy of the World Trade Center
Pummeling deep within our souls
Reality of hatred so deep and rare
Feeling a deep call for retaliation
To those who were held responsible
For the slaughter of thousands
Leaders stating our devastation
To the moral equivalence of none
The pain we took on and bore
Uniting together in the catastrophe
Standing and facing the danger
Of a new terrorism that has spread.

One and a half years later we stand
Behind the justification of the tragedy
To the moral equivalence to none
Watching the desolation we are creating
As the bombs in Baghdad are falling
Lighting up in the sky everywhere
Fires ablaze in a city of people like us
Innocent men, women, and children
Hearing the sounds of sirens ringing
Feeling of terror being passed to them
Fearing what they cannot see coming
Deafening explosions reverberating
Hoping the strategic targets are not near
Praying they will see a future day.

In our pursuit of the war on terrorism
As the death tolls of the innocent rise
Now who have become the expendable?
Will we be able to stand behind our tragedy?
To the loss of the moral equivalence to none.
Or will we be able to pass the titled phrase
To the many souls who will have died
So their survivors can rise against us
For the terror we have imposed upon them
On behalf of the pain we have inflicted
The devastation we’ve brought upon them
To strike upon us with their loss and hurt
Of a moral equivalence to none.
