911 - Poem by Eleanor Rose


It was a dark day
On 911
The sky filled with smoke
The air filled with screams
Of terror and pain

People running
Not knowing where they are going
People run from buildings
To safety
From the burning twin towers

Many were stuck
In the buildings
Thinking the end is near
As they watch the room burn
With thick smoke of sorrow

Only a few who were brave
Dared to climb the stairs
To the gates of death
To save the lives of so many

The sky filled with thunder
The thunder of shock
As the people watch the scene
Of the twin towers
Crumpling down

So many lives were lost
With those who were brave
And those who were afraid
May they always stay
In our loving hearts
