Post 9/11 Poem : For Love of Country, or Man

one of my delayed poetic reactions after the tragedy of 9/11

I miss the comfort of my country
not ever being attacked on its own soil
like the touch of a man
How there was a sense of safety
in an unsafe world

I try to hold on to history
as close as possible
to think of the good ol’ times
it’s how I get through these days
