Ten Years Later 9/11

Ten Years Later 9/11

A Poem by Abdul Batin Osman Bey
"

I original wrote this on the tenth year anniversary of 9/11 but just posting it now.

"

The blinded masses swallowed government lies

Grabbing weapons going to die

Heading off to kill Gods other children

At the command of Old Satan

No questions asked

Patriotic sickness spread like the flu

Waving flags bashing Muslims and f**s

Ten years later the blood flows on

Nothing went right

Everything’s gone wrong

In another ten years maybe we’ll end this dance, end this song

I recently watched "Thirty Days" a show about an iconic Christian, American man was Muslim for thirty days. The show addressed all kinds of issues between America and Muslims, including Islam-phobia. I found it sad for many reasons, but the one that stood out the most was how the Muslims stated there was one God and that Christianity, Judaism, and Islam worshiped him all but in different ways. Still, he could not accept that, he couldn't believe that it was the same God, there was only the Christian God.
That show, this poem, it all tells a very true tale. That things are not better, that hate is easier to spread, that lies are easier to spread than forgiveness and truth.

agreed, it's tuning out the negative that's important.
An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind, memory is short and the oprressed becomes the oppresser in a second or those wronged wrong others in a heartbeat. The aftermath is betrayel of values and trust. Through the ages how little we learn doomed to repeat our mistakes. good write.

I think it's unfortunate that people don't learn from past mistakes
such a shame how a few mad individuals can ruin the outlook on a whole masses of people, it brings out how people really are underneath all the fakeness, if someone really is a good person or inherently discrimantory

I am sure you remember that feeling of how we were all united after that happened...then it faded and look where we are now, still pointing fingers, still racial slurs, still close minded souls...I would love for that to change in 10 more years, however I am more inclined to think that its always been this way, and always will be. Your poem, a fantastic reminder of how far we have not come...great write.

Thank you so much I appreciate your point of view
This is a sentiment that seems to be prevalent in the decade that's passed since then...there was a lot of talk in the immediate aftermath about how things would change for the better and we would come closer together, but that hasn't come close to happening...you really capture that despondency intensely and poetically.
