Poetry and drawings depicting my feelings and those of others around the world following September 11 2001
On that day of horror, It was not just Americans that were affected. Poeple right around the globe watched those horrific events unfold on live television, myself included.
For days I was numb. I wrote a poem called "Numb"
I emailed it to George Bush and The New York Times. A day or so later I saw the workers bent over the rubble pulling at it with their bare hands and the steel structures, which resembled crosses.
I made a drawing and wrote a poem called "Calary".
Every day for the next few months as various events took place I continued to write and draw until the emotion was released. I was puzzled as to why any human being could do such a thing to another. My graphics are of jigsaw puzzle pieces. I called the book "Puzzling Thoughts."
Adventurous little boy at play.
Your sandy world's not what it seems.
I wonder who you'll be today
Playing in your land of dreams.
Your heroes, are they Taliban?
Fighting in the mountains high.
Do you believe in Superman?
Muscles of steel, ruling the sky.
Can you use a cricket bat?
Hit a ball, score a run.?
Have you heard of Dick Whittington's cat?
No? but I bet you can shoot a gun.
Little guy enjoy your youth.
You'll soon become a man.
Hopefully you'll search for truth.
DON'T PICK UP THAT CAN!!!
