911 Remembered


Diving planes, Black smoke
flaming fireballs, Scaring all
disaster in the skies, shocking world
falling people, falling buildings
losing life, heroes saving
Strangers helping strangers
tears flowing, the flag still blowing
scenes of a movie, realing moving
seconds, minutes, hours go by
but the world stands by
The air is silence, no planes no trains
death falls a pond a nation
whose to blame, what a shame
a never ending night mare
a sign of hope, survivors a merging
Heroes showing, help growing
searching till the end of time
no soul, no mercy, no shame
who cause the pain, lots of strain
a nation rebounds, a turn around
many unsung heroes, many stories
strong we grow, we will never sink so low
heads up, many proud souls
we will never forget that day
the lights to heaven, sending souls to home
candle lights for every lost soul
many tears, pain so dear
a prayer for everyone soul
that this will never still our souls
we are united and strong
we were brought together by them
to create a strong love, a bright future
Life for all to enjoy
a moment of silence for those who suffered
so dearly, so merciful, living with pain
so many hearts, so many tears
we will never forget all that's lost
for 911 is day of memories and strength
a merged a new person, you and I
Proud and strong, fighters to the end
America 911 lives in all of us

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
