The Sleeping Giant
I have never been to the World
Never climbed to the top.
But I have seen the twin towers, and the Pentagon too.
I have stood in their shadows, a sense of their glory.
They were always there, and would be;
They were mountains I had not climbed.
I have climbed all of the mountains
I can see from my home,
And others I cannot.
They have all brought comfort, solace,
And even peace to this battered mind.
I always knew they would be there, always.
Now the Trade Centers are gone,
And what am I now, that I was then?
What can we do who have never known war?
