HOW ARE YOU DOING? (10/11/01)
© David Dean 2001
"How are you doing?" so many have asked.
"Terrible!" I reply, and it is the truth.
How can we be otherwise when so many
Have died and such horror persists.
How have we made it safe this far?
How shall we carry on?
We are borne on the prayers of believers
Who share our burden of grief.
A deep haze encloses the city still
And lonely "The Empire" stands,
While deep in the pit fires smolder
"Whenever, O Lord, will this end?"
