(I wrote this poem about 9/11 in 2004)

Two buildings, glorious in their might,
Beautiful and boundless,
So high, the mighty giants,
In the blink of an eye,
Both are gone, stand nothing.

The perfect painted pictures,
Erased from the canvas.

A day not to be forgotten.
Hearts broken, lives, loves lost.
Freedom stolen for a brief moment.
Uncertainty, lingers as we cry.

Hearts shattered, fear endures, hope so far away.
People crying out. To frozen to move.

Picking up the pieces.

Memories that last for a life time,
Remembering what was,
Remembering what always will be.

Mending Hearts.
Calming Fears.
Nations, Countries together as one.
Brothers and sisters, yes we are one.

Living, loving, overcoming.

Courage. Bravery, Freedom.
