Cassandra ~ A #poem

This poem was first posted in 2017 and it was not especially written for 9/11. But I feel it fits for commemorating this day that changed everything.

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone whose life was touched by these events.

Cassandra

Sister

Can you hear me?

I am calling out

To those who want to listen.

They do not understand.

They do not understand

The invisible chains

Connecting us to past failures.

They do not understand

The invisible thoughts

Their careless words create.

They do not understand

How we are all

Connected.

They do not understand

Still,

I am calling out

To those who want to listen.

Sister

Can you hear me?

Cassandra is a figure in greek mythology who was given psychic abilities but noone would listen to her warnings.
