It Has Been Twelve Years (Tribute To September 11th 2001)


It has been twelve years
Since that gloomy day
Frustration, corruption, and grief
Hit the universe in every which way
Buildings were shattered
And then they started to fall
Some people were left in a state of uncertainty
Others were left staring at a wall
That day was very mindboggling
Many people were in a state of confusion
No one could quite understand
This was a cryptic situation
That day will forever live in infamy
It was nothing but total turmoil
Many tears were shed on that day
Misery was displayed in every which way
That day will forever live on as a memory
Of the disaster that took place
Many loved ones sadly perished
The events that took place was a total disgrace

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
