Dedicated to men and women who perished in the September 11 attacks
Its been ten years
It seems like yesterday
The horrifying events that caused tears
On Americas darkest day.
I can remember getting up for school
I was packing by backpack
I saw the TV and saw this message in the acts of cruel
America is attack.
Hundreds of firefighter and paramedics rushing to the scene
Running into the buildings through the debris shower
To this day i always wonder
How many of them knew they werent coming out of the tower.
It wasnt just the WTC
There had been another attack
The Pentagon, the center of our countrys military
The skies had turned black.
One plane however did not succeed
Brave passengers retook the plane
A selfless and valiant deed
Sadly they perished all the same.
After two hours
Fire burning their supports
They finally fell
The twin towers.
3000 live lost
Hundreds more wounded
Such attacks came at a heavy cost
The seeds of evil had been rooted.
I remember the week after
No planes flew in the sky
No jokes, no laughter
Just images of those who die.
10 years later
We still remember
In the ground, a large crater
Where the towers fell, thet september.
