in memory

Was watching I-Witness 911, and remembering. I didn't realize how much of my spiritual journey into adulthood was impacted by one act of destruction. I looked over my life and realized how much of where I am now began that day. I can taste the remnant of the memory in my mouth, even now.

If there was no September 11th, I would have never fallen in love, never reaffirmed my faith, never been called my flaws, never broken my heart, never found my calling, never met my covenent partner, never taken my job, never served my God, never found my purpose.

laughing with
no knowledge
walking with
no direction
worry without
apathy with
no apology
fragile life with no

We interrupt this regularly scheduled life for a humanity check.

but no air
but no tears
but no fire
but no refuge
but no reflecting
but no time
but no healing

screaming, screaming, screaming
no sound.
no voices.
not even my own.
