Tribute & Prayer To Belgium On March 22nd After Terrorist Attack- poem by Drem

It’s nearing 8AM  EST on March 22, 2016.

Today at 8AM CET in Belgium suicide bombers attacked their airport and subways.

At 9:59 AM EST on September 11, 2011 the first Twin Tower fell by suicide bombers.


Just threw this together. It’s my immediate reaction to the Belgian attacks.


To Belgium, by Drem

March 22, 2016

“My heart pounds with panic

over my memories relived.

My heart pounds with sadness

knowing my memories are being lived.

It all comes running back now

as it all comes to you.

The circle of terror ringing

round our corner once more.

Again the safety of our children

are being threatened by bombs.

More lives are changing

forever scarred.

Fear is a power

that is being propelled.

Time may heal injuries,

but can’t heal

our  witnessed hell.

Those poor crying eyes.

Those poor virgin eyes, you have.

I’ve seen what you’ve seen, Belgium,

looked evil straight in the face.

Straight in the eye.

Fought it and fought it,

in my country and state.

That evil, it’s a monster. It’s a stranger.

A disgrace to the human race.

And experiencing it,

it changes everything.

Though the next day may be worse

know tomorrow may be better.

It stays with you.

but remember you can get through.

Belgians, I hear you.

Belgians, I feel for you.

Belgians, I pray for you.

Belgians, I love you.

Belgians, I am with you.

Yours sincerely,

A 9/11 New Yorker”
