My Poetry

September 11, 2001

(written Sept. 12, 2001)

I believe
we are all
connected
I believe
we all have
a soul

all animals
humans
creatures
plants
all inanimate objects
have a soul

I believe
our souls are
drawn to one
another
that we join
together with
the earth
and form a great
collective soul

I believe
we all need
each other
we derive
sustenance
soul to soul
I believe

I believe
our souls
grieve together
today
for all our losses

mothers fathers
husbands wives
friends, workers, and children
Christians, Buddhists, Jews,
Muslims, Pagans;
all believers and non alike,
great souls
once great cells
have been cut loose from us
and we will never be the same
and I grieve.

~ Kate
