Not Enough~#poetry #September11 #themagicshop

Enough already

Why write about it?

Too many poems, too many stories

Words can’t resurrect

 

Cancel the memorial

It happened, we all know that

Standing tall for us to feel low

Cement doesn’t revive

 

Live coverage of a dead past

All the channels, every stream

Pressing a button won’t stop the names

The show brings us nothing

 

Wastes of time, move on

Breathing is for the living

Reminders are hurtful

Exit this darkness already

 

Why is this necessary?

Millions of prayers

Endless tears

Because…. it’s not enough today

 

They must never stop

Write your pain

Construct the memory

Repeat the footage

 

They didn’t have sufficient warning

No time to prepare

Minimal goodbyes

There wasn’t enough life for them

There must never be enough of us remembering this about them all
