Any given moment of
Any given day
Of
Any given hour
Any given lifetime
Everything can change
Everything

Any given time
Any given place
We could open up our eyes
From our dreams arise and
see our world’s a different place

But when we stop
And breathe
We will stop
And see
And when we look
We’ll find
We will overcome
Adversity
In time…

As we stop
We see
We remember
We move on
We believe

Any given moment of
Any given day of
Any given hour
Anything could happen
Everything could change

Everything.

Any given time
Any given place
We could open up our eyes
From our dreams arise
and see our world’s
a different place

And as we stop
We breathe
We remember…
We move on
We believe

A tribute to the resilient human spirit that transformed NYC from the nightmare of 9/11 to the beauty of the memorial. This poem was written on that day…September 11, 2001, as I watched in horror with the rest of the world. But I love that that was so not the end of the story.
